Barcelona, a photo a day

The Palau de la Musica: the concert hall

The concert hall of the Palau, which seats about 2,200 people, is the only auditorium in Europe that is illuminated during daylight hours entirely by natural light. The walls on two sides consist primarily of stained-glass panes set in magnificent arches, and overhead is an enormous skylight of stained glass designed by Antoni Rigalt whose centerpiece is an inverted dome in shades of gold surrounded by blue that suggests the sun and the sky.

  5. It really is an amazing building, the ceiling is spectacular, love the sky/sun theme. All that scrumptious stained glass, I bet it looks fabulous when the sun shines through.
