“Surely "the" museum to visit in Barcelona. For the artist and for the building. Imagine Montcada Street, in the Gothic quarter, five mansions united to form a museum, lovely to visit. About Pablo Ruiz Picasso the museum is essential to understand his formative years. The genius of the young artist is revealed to us through more than 3,500 works that make up this permanent collection.”

“The Poble Espanyol, or Spanish Village, is one of the city's most popular visitor attractions: a unique combination of architecture, contemporary art, traditional crafts, shops, gastronomy and traditions, in a pleasant setting free of traffic which is perfect for all the family. Situated in one of Barcelona's most iconic areas, just a short distance away from the Montjuïc Fountains, the Poble Espanyol was built in 1929 for the International Exhibition and resembles an actual village with replicas of 117 real-life scale buildings from different Spanish regions. You'll find a typical Andalusian quarter, a section of the Way of Saint James and examples of Romanesque monastic architecture, among others. To make the most of the visit, Poble Espanyol has been restructured and presents a new territorial design. Moreover, you can enjoy the new Feeling Spain, five immersive audio-visual capsules created with the objective of allowing you to know and feel the diversity and cultural wealth of different parts of the Peninsula: the north, the Way of St. James (Camino de Santiago), the Mediterranean, the south and the territory of El Quijote. Inside Poble Espanyol, there is also the Fiesta space a multimedia facility which allows visitors to discover the soul of a culture through its popular festivals, some of which have been recognised by UNESCO on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity: the festival of San Fermin, La Patum, the Castells (human towers), the Tomatina festival, the Holy Week and others. The village is also a unique place to shop, open 365 days a year. There are more than 20 crafts workshops that open every day so you can see the craftspeople working on unique pieces of pottery, glass, leather and jewellery. The Museu Fran Daurel is another main attraction at the Poble Espanyol. It showcases some 300 works by major contemporary artists, including Picasso, Dalí and Miró. Admission to the museum is included with the ticket to the Poble Espanyol. You will also find Guinovart area, a vast and luminous space with a huge sculpture of Josep Guinovart. Moreover, there is the sculpture garden where 36 sculptures transform the garden of Poble Espanyol into an evocative space where art and nature embrace each other. At the end of the garden is a viewpoint with a marvellous view of Barcelona. Last, and by no means least, there's a wide choice of bars and restaurants that reveal the variety and wealth of Spanish gastronomy. And if the weather's fine, why not sit out on one of the pleasant café terraces?”

“Barcelona's Casa Vicens (1883-1885), declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2005, a unique oasis of calm with an Oriental and Moorish flavour, stands in the peaceful neighbourhood of Gràcia. The building is covered with spectacular green and white tiles. It was built by a young Gaudí as a summer home commissioned by Manel Vicens y Montaner (1836-1895), a stock market dealer and broker. It is the first of Gaudí's works in Barcelona in which he was able to display the full range of his talents. He created an innovative and original project that broke completely with the style of anything else built in Catalonia up to that point. Casa Vicens is one of the first examples of an aesthetic renewal in art and architecture that took place in Europe at the end of the 19th century. It marks the beginning of Gaudí's artistic career and is considered to be one of the first masterpieces of Modernism. The most important source of inspiration in all Gaudí's work is the world of nature, and Casa Vicens is one of the first examples, given that it represents and incorporates a variety of natural elements into the overall design. Particularly striking is the cast iron gate at the entrance to the estate, which features representations of palm tree leaves and then the carnations that Gaudí adapts as an ornamental feature for the ceramic tiles of the facade. This reference to natural elements is not only present on the outside of the house but also, by integrating different decorative arts - ironwork, painting, ceramics, carpentry, mural decoration, etc. - Gaudí succeeds in having nature penetrate the inside of the house, thereby creating continuity between the exterior and interior space. If you look beyond the decoration you'll see the historicist Mudejar style as well as the forms which are Indian and Japanese in inspiration. Gaudí paid particular attention to the corners of the building, which were ridged in order to avoid the austere appearance of classical architecture. This orientalised exoticism was greeted with enthusiasm by the elite classes at the time in Barcelona. This is why it should come as no surprise that Gaudí's first building gained a much more enthusiastic reception than his later landmarks buildings, such as " La Pedrera". Casa Vicens opens as a House Museum and proposes a rigorous visit that is also attractive for all audiences, which includes a permanent exhibition and a tour through the original rooms of Gaudí, carefully preserved and restored.”

“The Chocolate Museum is a dynamic facility driven by the Pastry Shop of Barcelona, located in the old convent of Sant Agustí, which presents a journey through the origins of chocolate, its arrival in Europe and its diffusion as an element located between myth and reality, between medicinal properties and their nutritional value, which relate tradition to the future and that are part of our collective imagination.”

Science Museum
“CosmoCaixa offers its visitors a whole host of activities and permanent and temporary exhibitions to give anyone who is interested a greater insight into the world of science. Highlights of exhibitions include the "Flooded Forest", which recreates 1,000 m2 of an Amazonian rainforest ecosystem and features piranhas, crocodiles and other animal and plant species typical to the zone; the "Geological Wall", comprising seven spectacular sections of real rock which illustrate the world's different geological structures. The CosmoCaixa also offers other areas, exhibitions and activities related with Science for children, adults and families: the "Clik", the "Touch, touch!", the "Bubble Planetarium", "Creactivity" and other workshops for families. The museum building is just as fascinating as its contents. Cosmocaixa is a beautiful example of modernista architecture, designed and built between 1904 and 1909 by Josep Domènech i Estapà. The modern extension carried out in 2004 highlighted the value of the century-old building while placing it in a new context.”

“If you are into boats, you will enjoy this museum. I personally prefer to frequent their cafe which is located on the "backside" of the main museum entrance. Enjoy a coffee or drink in a sunken cobblestone courtyard complete with a small fountain, fish, and orange trees. A lovely place to be cool in the hot summer months here, and a great place to read. They close at 8, so a good spot to visit for a late afternoon or pre-dinner drink. ”
