Palau de la Musica & Heart of Barcelona

No visit to Barcelona is considered complete without a visit to the magnificent Palau de la Musica Catalana (Palace of Catalan Music). Exclusive arrangements have been made for you to visit this amazing place. This unique, authentic and beautiful building is one of the best examples of Art Nouveau (Modernism) architecture – a style which blossomed in the early 20th century. It’s the only concert hall in this style to be listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. From Cathedral Square, a short walk takes you to Palau de la Musica for an exclusive inside visit. It’s not only known for its aesthetic beauty, but also as one of the world’s leading concert halls. You’ll find it to be an extraordinary building inside as well as outside; a masterpiece of creativity and imagination.


Walk to the Cathedral through the famous Via Laietana and your guide will explain the facade of the Gothic Cathedral. Walk the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter, cross Plaza Real and through Ferran Street to the city’s administrative center and site of the Palau de la Generalitat, a 15th century Gothic structure with a renaissance facade. Across from the plaza is the Town Hall, located within a 14th-century building. Enter the colorful boulevard known as Las Rambla and follow your guide for a walk towards the sea to reach the Columbus Monument where your coach awaits.


Note: Palau de la Musica is a fully operational concert hall. Visits may occasionally be changed or cancelled. No photography, filming or recording is allowed inside the halls. There is a substantial amount of walking on this tour, approximately 2 1/2 hours and approximately 50 steps. Tour is offered on Norwegian Jade sailings except, it will not operate for the December 28, 2013 sailing.
