Auditorium / National Theatre of Catalonia

The Auditorium is a modern building of 42,000 square feet, designed by architect Rafael Moneo and opened in 1999. Over time, it has become a new focal point for the city's musical life in the different areas of popularisation, teaching and research.


It is comprised of three concert halls, offering excellent acoustics. It is also home to the Museum of Music; the Higher School of Music of Catalonia (ESMUC), and the Barcelona Symphony and Catalonia National Orchestra (OBC). Well worth seeing is the cubic glass skylight decorated with striped paintings by Pablo Palazuelo.


The National Theatre of Catalonia (TNC) is located in a building of 20,000 square meters, covered by a gable roof supported by 26 columns of 12 metres. Its structure is reminiscent of a Greek temple. Designed by the architect Ricardo Bofill, it opened in 1996. It has three theatre halls with different capacities.
