Palau de la Musica Catalana

The palace of Catalan music in located in Barcelona, Spain.
it was built between 1905 and 1908 for Orfeó Català, a choral society founded in 1891 that was a leading force in the Catalan cultural movement that came to be known as the Renaixença (Catalan Rebirth) and was inaugurated on 9 February 1908.
I think that it is one the things you can’t miss when you visit Barcelona, even if not so close from the center and the beaten path. When you enter you notice the particolar round shape of the palace.

A think that’s really amazing is the glass that’s on the top of the Palace, the Stained-glass skylight
This is what you can see from the bottom, something really beautiful and so colorful. It represents a choir of young women around the sun


The shape of the glass is also in three dimensions and it’s created to give the idea of the chandelier with the natural light and it was designed by Antoni Rigalt

In fact, it’s the only auditorium in Europe that receives the sunlight


The concert hall can handle 2200 people
