Cercle del Liceu

The Cercle del Liceu opened in 1847 and is an English-style private members' club, with its own unique art collection. With almost 1,000 members, the club comprises elegant sitting rooms, a lecture room, a restaurant and other services in a landmark building which it shares with the opera house, the Gran Teatre del Liceu.

The Cercle del Liceu is a wonderful showcase for Catalonia's home-grown art nouveau, Modernisme. It contains outstanding paintings and examples of the decorative arts by leading artists of the time, including Miralles, Masriera, Rusiñol and Gaspar Homar, as well as an important collection of paintings by Ramon Casas. Throughout the year, the club organises a wide range of events, including recitals, concerts, lectures, presentations, parties and testimonials which attract members and personalities from the cultural life of the city.

You can visit the club from Monday to Sunday at 10am as part of the guided tour of the Gran Teatre del Liceu de Barcelona.
