Gran Teatre del Liceu is located in the city center of Barcelona, on the La Rambla street. It was created in 1847 and has since then been used as the primer site for many different theatre shows, operas and much more. A large part of the building was destroyed due to a fire in 1861. The Teatre del Liceu suffered yet another fire in 1994 where afterwards a big renovation took place and in 1999 the theatre was reopened again.
