The Basics

The Gran Teatre del Liceu has seating for some 2,300 spectators, but you don’t have to come for an opera to appreciate the grand building. Guided tours lead through some of its most impressive areas, including the grand foyer and Hall of Mirrors, both of which survived fire; the main auditorium; and El Círculo del Liceo, one of Spain’s oldest social clubs, decorated with a collection of modernista art. Those who want to learn more about the surrounding neighborhood—bohemian Raval—can take a guided walking tour that includes the opera house, along with several other local haunts.
