Unlike the Liceu and the Palau de la Música, the Auditorium hosts a hybrid function within its walls. Its huge surface with an area of ​​over 42,000 m2, has allowed to book a room for symphony orchestras and chamber ensembles of 2,800 seats; it has two smaller multipurpose spaces with capacity for 600 people.

The auditorium was designed by the Navarran architect Rafael Moneo and it was built based on current technical knowledge, as evidenced by the detailed study of sound around the building made by Higini Arau or the final format of the glass cubic dome in the center which provides light, in addition to a spectacular detail.

In the Auditorium, also, it has its headquarters the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra and the National Orchestra of Catalonia, which offers even greater security in accordance with the concerts and the dissemination of art from this vantage point close to one of the new centers of the city: Glories and 22 @.

Liceu, Palau de la Música and the Auditorium, the three music venues that all good music lovers should visit.
