PALAU DE LA MUSICA CATALANA
Not far stands out a magnificent concert hall designed by the prestigious Domènech i Muntaner for the choirs of the local working class. Hear about the industrial revolution and how it was closely connected to the development of the Modernist style.
This building is only seen from outside.

A custom stroll
The Eixample hides many exceptional examples of how Modernism got integrated in the local life. Depending on your interests, your guide will figure out a custom itinerary to include those places that will interest you the most.
Maybe it’s how the iron architecture was the perfect solution to cover local markets. Maybe it’s 100 years old modernist shops such as pharmacies and cafés. Maybe it’s a Gothic Cloister that was moved from the Old Town and rebuilt in the Eixample district. Maybe it’s more modernist architects, some of them not even mentioned in the guidebooks but a very important part of the local landscape. Maybe it’s a modernist apartment now located inside a fashion store.
Discuss with your guides what sounds more appealing to you, and get ready to see Barcelona from the eyes of a local.
