UNESCO World-Heritage

The Palau de la Música Catalana is a unique modernist gem right in the heart of Barcelona’s old town. 

Designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner, the Palau de la Música Catalana is one of nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Barcelona. The sites with this status in the Catalan capital include seven of the works of Antoni Gaudí, and two from his art nouveau contemporary Domènech i Montaner – the Palau, as well as the modernist enclosure of the old Hospital de Sant Pau. The Palau was given UNESCO status in 1997
