Casa da Música, in Porto, is one of the 15 world's most spectacular concert halls, according to building data company Emporis

The list, in which architectural projects coming from all parts of the world were considered, was announced by CNN this week. 

Casa da Música was conceived to mark 2001, the year in which Porto was Cultural Capital of Europe, and it is the first new building in Portugal to be entirely dedicated to music.
