This is one of the largest cinemas in Barcelona, and it is housed in an old 19th-century theater. The hall, therefore, retains much of its historic charm and glory. The spectator is the king here, as he gets a truly wide-screen experience, with a choice to sit in the stalls or the circle. It is also a great place for children as there are regular screenings for them. The latest blockbusters, however, pull maximum audiences.
An eye-catching fixture of downtown Barcelona, the Palau de la Música Catalana boasts a striking modernist design. It was built in the early-20th century by architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner, who designed the now-iconic exterior to feature intricate carvings, red brick arches, and exquisite Spanish and Arabic architectural details. Inside, the concert hall is even more breathtaking with its gold accents, floral patterns, and exceptional stained-glass elements. Visitors to the Palau de la Música Catalana will be awed by the kaleidoscopic skylight whether they take in a show or simply tour this breathtaking UNESCO World Heritage Site.
