This exciting route helped me discover hidden spots in my hometown, Barcelona, from the viewpoint of classical music, together with our specialised insider.
The Gothic Quarter of Barcelona is very charming, there are surprises around every corner, and every time you walk around its streets you discover something new.
The visit began in one of the historical bars in Petritxol Street, where we had some churros with chocolate. In this street, Montserrat Caballé worked selling foulards back in 1950.
We continued along Portaferrissa Street until we reached Pi Street, where the Maldà Palace is located. This is where The Creation by Joseph Haydn was performed for the first time in Barcelona in the 19th century.
Then we headed to Sant Jaume Square. I was very surprised to learn that the composer Richard Strauss conducted a concert right there, in that very spot, at the beginning of the 20th century.
This area of Barcelona is full of hidden signs, but thanks to our specialised insider we were able to see and understand them all, walking to the rhythm of the best classical music.
After walking around among local shops and disoriented tourists, we arrived at the house where one of the most famous Catalan composers, Enric Morera, was born. The house is situated near the first location of the Orfeó Català.
Finally, we headed to our last stop, a beautiful Art Nouveau palace with a very interesting relationship to classical music in Barcelona. A surprising and unique place! Would you like to discover it?
