Palau de la Música

Palau Moxó

A Baroque-style palace belonging to the Moxó family, from whom it takes its name. It’s a unique building in Barcelona because of the place it takes in the city’s history. It was the only such palace of its style and era to remain standing after the bombings in the Spanish Civil War. If you want to pay a visit, guided tours are available where you’ll get to explore all the different rooms throughout the palace, excluding the Moxó family’s private chambers, where they still live to this day.

Another palace built in the Baroque style at the very heart of Barcelona. Looking on from Las Ramblas, you can see the main façade of the palace, which today houses Barcelona’s cultural centre. Visits to the palace are centred around two main areas. On the one hand, you can explore the palace buildings themselves, and on the other, you can delve into the permanent exhibitions that are housed here, in what’s known as the Image Centre.

Palau de la Música

Here, you can enjoy just about every kind of music, from classical staples all the way up to the most modern. Find more information in one of our other blog posts on the Palau de la Música.
