Spanish Guitar Concert at the Basilica of Santa Maria del Pi in Barcelona
The guitarist was extremely talented and so expressive with her playing. It was an intimate setting in a side chapel of the church. If you enjoy Spanish guitar, I would highly recommend this performance.

So so so lovely. I can’t believe for this price we had an hour long beautiful concert in a gorgeous old church. What a lovely evening. Recommend the tapas place across the street beforehand.

Beautiful concert (just switch off your mobile please!)

Spanish Guitar Concert at the Basilica of Santa Maria del Pi in Barcelona
This was an excellent and very enjoyable concert with the Paco de Lucia classics. Beautiful setting too. The only adverse comment is that several people in the audience (presumably people who don’t get the opportunity to go out much!) insisted on recording it or taking photos on their mobile phones which rather detracted from the overall experience.So, in my opinion it would have been even better if they had asked people not to use their mobiles during the concert. (This must have been distracting for the guitarists too).

Magical evening with a master of Spanish guitar

Spanish Guitar Concert at the Basilica of Santa Maria del Pi in Barcelona
We thoroughly enjoyed this experience. It was purely magical to listen to the best of Spanish guitar in an atmospheric setting of a small Chapel in a centre of Barcelona. Highly recommended!

Beautiful Classical Guitar in a Beautiful Chapel
Zwida_Ozkart, Sep 2021
Spanish Guitar Concert at the Basilica of Santa Maria del Pi in Barcelona
Hidden gem! Ekaterina Zaytseva was an absolute joy to watch. The chapel is beautiful, the show intimate and masterful—only wonderful things to say about this experience. At one hour, this is an easy yes for anyone with time to spare. The only question mark I have is why this wasn’t sold out!

Pine Giants

At the entrance of the basilica is a case holding four giant wearable puppets: Mustafá, Elisenda (to honor Queen Elisenda de Montcada), Oriol (for St. José, patron saint of the barrio of Pi), and Laia (after St. Eulalia, the patroness of Barcelona). They date back to the 16th and 18th centuries and are still used in festivals and Catholic feast days.
