Barcelona, a photo a day

Gran Teatre del Liceu


 The Liceu, as we call it, the Barcelona opera house. We went there on Sunday, as it was the European Opera Day. Grandiose would an understatement. They liked to build big, in the 1840es. With it’s 2292 seats, it is one of the biggest and oldest opera houses in Europe.

 The ceiling above the main hall…

… and the one in the next room.

  2. It's a stunning piece of architecture Rob, you've shown it so beautifully here, not easy with such an enormous vista to cover.
