Palau de la M&_sica Catalana was built from 1905 to 1908 by architects Louis Domenech Montaner (Llu & 7; s Dom & _2; nech Montaner). It is one of the representatives of Catalonian modernist architecture and the only modernist Concert Hall listed by UNESCO as a world cultural heritage. It's hard to imagine such an architectural treasure hidden in a very crowded alley in the old city of Barcelona. The narrow lane in front of the Music Palace can hardly accommodate the next car, even if you use a wide-angle lens to take a full picture of it. I was in a taxi, let the driver bring it, I really can't find it. If you want to enter this magical concert hall, you can only attend 15 visiting groups every day from 10:00 to 15:30 on Monday to Friday. Under the guidance of the official lecturer, you can take the prescribed route to visit the concert hall. There are five kinds of languages to explain, including Catalan, Spanish, French, English and Italian. One kind is to be replaced every half hour, and the most is in English, seven times a day. The fare is 18 euros! Guide Tour is almost every half hour, about one hour per game. It's worth it! Explanations include video introductions, manual explanations and the previously mentioned symphonic clips to appreciate! ___________ The first floor of the concert hall is a cafe. The luxurious atmosphere of the building has been felt by the colored glass windows and the reliefs full of walls. There is no coffee and cake, but it is also satisfied to use the bathroom. The white marble staircase leading to the concert hall upstairs is very elegant, and the golden glass railings and delicate plant relief decorations are interesting. The stone pillars beside the stairs are adorned with stone-carved flowers, which are very vivid and charming. The oval auditorium was originally built to provide a performing base for the Catalan Chorus. The concert hall has two grandstands with 2146 seats. Designer Domenech boldly used the extremely avant-garde glass curtain wall technology at that time. The whole concert hall was bathed in abundant natural light outside. It was the only Concert Hall in Europe that was illuminated by natural light during the day. What attracts people's attention is the huge stained glass inverted dome just above the concert hall. The glass mosaic with inverted bell milk decoration is beautiful, which can be regarded as the finishing touch of the whole concert hall. The large area of glass curtain wall around the hall brings enough light to the concert hall. The brilliant patterns on the curtain wall echo with the glass dome. Behind the stage is a stage background decorated with mosaic tiles and 18 busts of girls holding various instruments. Inspired by Greek mythology, 18 Muses wore different instruments and long skirts. The facial movements and movements are carefully crafted. There are also those roses, flying sculptures and so on. The tour guides explain them one by one. Unfortunately, I really don't like Spanish English. I only understand 40 [%]. If you have a chance, you must listen to a concert here, even if you don't understand Spanish at all.
