Description

Take a tour of the biggest horseshoe-shaped opera theater in Europe, and the second biggest in the world. Uncover the majestic world of the Catalan bourgeoisie and see the home of the exclusive club still operating today!

The Gran Teatre del Liceu stands as a symbol of Barcelona's cultural and artistic history. It was opened in 1847 and has since survived two fires and an anarchist bombing! Originally founded by private shareholders, it also has no royal box.

You can choose between two tours:

Guided Tour

This 45-minute tour will show you all the best parts of the theater, from the elegant Renaissance-style lobby to the auditorium, an exact replica of the original horseshoe-shaped hall, designed in 1847.

See the seats capable of accommodating 2,300 opera connoisseurs and step into the historic Mirror Hall, which was once the preferred gathering place of the Catalan upper middle classes. Your tour concludes in the foyer, a multi-purpose venue located below the stalls.

Prestige Guided Tour

This 50-minute tour takes you through all of the above, but also includes a look at the Cercle del Liceu, a British-style private club founded in 1847. This spectacular area is home to one of Catalonia's most breathtaking Art Nouveau collections, spread throughout its lavishly decorated rooms.

A trip here will make you come away with a new appreciation for Catalan Art Nouveau, opera, and for exactly how much old buildings can put up with before they crack!

We had paid for audio guide visit, but had a guided tour instead. A place worth seeing and a nice guide, too!

We enjoyed the tour of the opera house. The tour guide was very thorough and was able to answer questions. I would recommend going to Liceu Opera house.

The theater was exquisite. The lovely guide was pleasant and very thorough at explaining in detail the history and current status of the theater. She spoke in both Catalan and English. Great visit!!!

De todos es conocido que en el ultimo incendio del Teatro del Liceu se perdío absolutamente todo el interior del patio de butacas, palcos y escenario. La reconstrucción se ha hecho cuidando todos los detalles, y francamente es precioso de ver, asi como la sala donde los espectadores salen durante los entreactos, o hall principal donde no llegó el fuego y que se matiene intacto. Pero hubo un detalle que no pude evitar observar y fueron los pasillos que dan acceso a los palcos. Pasillos modernos, minimalistas. Me extraña muchisimo que antaño esos accesos a los palcos y esos pasillos fueran asi. Ya puestos se podrían haber reconstruido los accesos y pasillos de igual manera que el interior. Esto me chocó bastante.

Sympathique culturel et une guide enthousiaste. Audioguide très bien. Dommage que certaines salles soient fermées.
