Catalan Modernisme: Stained Glass Ceiling at Palau de la Música

Catalan Modernisme: Stained Glass Ceiling at Palau de la Música

If you think you have seen it all regarding art nouveau stained glass windows or ceilings then you have not visited Palau de la Música, the outstanding representative of Catalan modernisme built by Lluís Domènech i Montaner in 1908.

As many of you already know this is a must see when visiting Barcelona.

There are guided tours so save a little time for admiring it but don't worry if you can't make it to Barcelona,  you can go on an incredible 360 virtual tour inside Palau de la Música Catalana for starters.

Taking pictures is not allowed so I don't know how this snap got into my camera anyway. Check the full view here.

    You're right, we ain't seen nothing till we've seen this! Absolutely stupendous. Amazing also how things end up in our cameras without us knowing! Check out what happened to Eric of PDP on his Censored post of the Prison de la Sante a few days back!
