During your trip to Barcelona, there have many tourist attractions that you can’t afford to miss; one of them is Gran Teatre del Liceu or Barcelona’s opera house in English. The opera house made itself unique right from the beginning; it was funded by private shareholders of the Societat del Liceu (Great Liceu Theater Society). The impact of this move is still vivid until now, for example, there is no royal box in the opera house ; in contrast you can easily find these boxes in other museums all over Europe since the monarchy was on the charge of the building and upkeep of opera houses. Also the existence of Gran Teatre del Liceu has inspired other opera houses to follow its footstep.
