A night at the music hall Nov. 13

The Palau de la Musica Catalana is a spectacular modernist building designed in 1908. We went for a Sunday night concert with some friends, to enjoy an evening of Vivaldi,  but also to see the interior of the building. Richly decorated in multi-color mosaic tiles and stained glass, the Palau is indeed a work of art. The center of the hall is dominated by a large inverted glass dome, which bathes the concert hall in a soft light. After the concert, it was only 8:00PM, still too early for supper. So we took a long walk around the busy El Born district, got lost just a bit, and then found our little resturant hidden in a quiet alley, and had supper till 1:00AM.
