SPAIN ~ Palace of Catalan Music - UNESCO ~

...Wonderful nightview of an impressive monument dedicated to of the most beautiful buildings situated on a corner of downtown Barcelona...Thanks so much Dustin ♥ for this nice surprise and thinking of me during your holiday!! ㋡

"Palau de la Música Catalana" (Music Palace), is a concert hall designed by the architec Lluís Domènech i Montaner and opened in 1908.

 It is built in the Catalan Modernisme style for the Orfeó Català, a choral society founded in 1891 that was a leading force in the Catalan cultural and political independence movement.

Outside, the building is decorated with a massive sculptural group symbolizing Catalan music by artist Miguel Blay.

The Palau de la Música Catalana was declared World Heritage by UNESCO in 1997.
