L’Auditori, officially the L’Auditori de Barcelona, is a stunning modern building that was opened in 1999. It was designed by award-winning Spanish architect Rafael Moneo who has created incredible structures throughout the world, and whose works include the Princeton Neuroscience Institute in America and the Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design in Stockholm, Sweden. His striking modern design of L’Auditori is a great example of sober modernity in architecture.
The L’Auditori can be found at the Placa de les Glories Catalanes in the north of the city, which is the culmination point of 3 of the longest avenues in Barcelona. Impressively, L’Auditori is at the heart of the square as its centre-piece.
The venue itself boasts a capacity of 3,200 and is comprised of 3 concert halls; Sala 1 seats 2,200, Sala 2 600, and Sala 3 400. The acoustics were carefully taken into consideration when designing L’Auditori since the building is now the home of the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra, and this also makes it the perfect setting for both classical and contemporary musical events. In addition to the shows that are performed there throughout the year, there are also musical workshops and a museum for music-lovers of all ages.

If you prefer a scenic walk through the centre, then L’Auditori is only a 25 minute walk from the main train station too. The bustling area of Barcelona where the venue is found also offers a plethora of fantastic food and drink options, so why not arrive a little earlier before the concert to enjoy a bite to eat there.
