After our food tour, we went to the Palau De la Musica Catalana. It is a beautiful space where choirs sing. Not just any choirs… magnificent choirs. And not just classical music, but all kinds of amazing music.
I wish I knew more about music, but I don’t. Celia knows a lot about music and she brought us here because it is a famous, wonderful space. I want to come back to hear choirs sing right here.
Side note: Since I’ve been in Spain, when I google something, it is in Spanish. I don’t want to link to a site you may not be able to read so, if you want to know more, google Palau De la Musica Catalana. You’ll be glad you did.
Mosaics are everywhere. This space was designed by a contemporary of Gaudi, Lluís Domènech i Montaner,
There are muses that surround the stage, to inspire the musicians. Honestly, doesn’t that sound wonderful? To be surrounded by muses?
And then there is the stained glass, on the outside of the building…
But the best piece is inside, above the stage. It is not flat, but dips down in the center. The space if lit by lovely, colored light…
After this, we went to see the inside of the Sagrada Familia. That visit deserves its very own post!
