Catalan Modernisme: Stained Glass Ceiling at Palau de la Música
© All Rights Reserved
If you think you have seen it all regarding artnouveau 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 cry if you can't make it to Barcelona, don't worry, you can go on an incredible virtual tour inside and outside Palau de la Música Catalana. Taking pictures is not allowed so I don't know how this snap got into my camera anyway. Check the full view here. Now with the show: This weekend we went to see Around the world with 80 percussion instruments (La volta al món amb 80 instruments de percussió) a percussion concert about sounds and rhythms from all over the world played with each and every instrument we can think of and some we never had seen before. Kids and grown-ups alike had a great time. Follow the link for details and tickets as it will be on till next March I guess.
