Gumbo's Pic of the Day, Dec. 22, 2013: Fantastic Skylight in Barcelona

https://www.travelgumbo.com/blog/architecture

 

1-aDSCN0935The fantastic skylight of Barcelona’s Palau de la Musica Catalana (Palace of Catalan Music) is a highlight of a building full of highlights. Built at the turn of the 20th century by “Barcelona’s Other Architect,” Lluis Domenech I Montaner, the Palau is still a premier concert hall for choral, pop, orchestral and even experimental music.

 

With or without a concert, it’s well worth a visit. For more information, take a look right here on TravelGumbo—a click HERE will take you to our blog on the architect and his work.

Well, turns out to be a moment of mis-identification. The building I was in, 1 Broadway, had been the offices of United States Lines; Cunard was up the street at 25 Broadway. I haven't a picture yet for the booking hall-turned-bank, but here are two shots of Cunard's Great Hall, which is now a postal facility.
