This Art Nouveau concert hall is located in the Born quarter. It is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. This building was designed by the famous architect Luis Domenech y Montagnier.
Construction of the building began in 1905 and ended in 1908. It was built on voluntary donations from the townspeople. After the palace officially opened in 1908, it almost immediately became the main concert hall not only of the city, but of the entire region. In the last years of the 20th century, the palace was expanded with the opening of a choir school and a chamber for the choir.
Curved and curved lines prevail in the architecture of the Palace of Music, as in any modernist building in the city. The facade is decorated in various traditions, mostly in Arabic and Spanish. The main facade is decorated with busts of famous composers and musicians: Pierluigi da Palestrina, Richard Wagner, Ludwig van Beethoven and Johann Sebastian Bach.
But the main thing in the Palace is not its architecture, but a unique concert hall ... Its uniqueness lies in the natural light of the room. Daylight enters the room through an amazingly beautiful glass ceiling. The ceiling is an inverted dome made of multicolored glass.
More than 2 thousand people can sit in the hall at the same time. It constantly hosts various exhibitions, conferences and, of course, concerts of classical music.
