Palace of Catalan Music

Vicki had seen photos on postcards of the Palau de Musica
de la Catalan and we resolved to see it--only via tour and
no pix--the next day; of all Barcelona's sights, it was the
most impressive, not a Gaudi piece, although the same
vintage and very Modernista; interior (off the web);
surprisingly, the place seats more than 2,000; it feels far
more intimate

Incredible inverted ceiling dome

Even the coffee shoppe wasn't bad looking


Exterior view, facade; the building is so
hemmed-in, you can't see much of it from the

More exterior

Plus, they treat Wagner very well
