Accessible tactile model of the Palau de la Música Catalana
This smart model replicates the stage of the Concert Hall in great detail. It features 26 touchpoints with explanations related to the architecture and history of the Palau that we can enjoy while tracing, with our hands, the relief of the different elements that make up the mouth of the modernist stage. This resource is universally accessible and is designed for children, adults, individuals with blindness or low vision, individuals with deafness (with subtitles and a magnetic loop), and individuals with reduced mobility, enabling them to enjoy the architecture and music of the Palau in a completely innovative and inclusive way. The model is located in the Palau's Foyer (cafeteria), and access is free and open.
