“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.”
“There is a hidden FC Barcelona football logo in the stained glass window of the gothic basilica.”
“The Cathedral of Santa Creu i Santa Eulàlia observes the passing of time in a city in constant movement and change. The Cathedral is also a reflection of the passage of generations and architectural styles mixed in a building of mostly Gothic character that must be visited inside to understand its splendour. The construction of the Cathedral of Barcelona took place over six centuries. Suffering from the donations of medieval guilds and guilds, the Santa Creu began to be built in 1298, on the sanctified land where there used to be a 4th century Paleochristian basilica, destroyed by the troops of Al-Mansur. Only the baptistery remains of this one. From the Romanesque church before the Gothic one, the chapel of Santa Lucia remains, while the oldest door of the Cathedral is that of St. Ivo. On the other hand, the main façade and the tower were finished around 1890, following the initial plans and therefore following a neo-Gothic style. Once inside, we are surprised by the 25 side chapels, the magnificent 14th century cloister and the choir stalls, which were used to gather the members of the Golden Fleece during the visit of Emperor Charles V of Germany in 1517. Of great beauty are the pulpit and the crypt where the remains of one of the patron saints of Barcelona, Santa Eulàlia, to whom the temple is dedicated, rest. The Latin cross plan and the ribbed rounds, as well as the beautiful stained glass windows, fill the interior space of the Cathedral with light.”
“A street in central Barcelona, popular with tourists and locals alike. A tree-lined pedestrian mall, it stretches for 1.2 kilometres connecting Plaça de Catalunya in the centre with Colombus statue.”
Point of Interest
“Another of Antoni Gaudí’s most postcard-friendly creations, everyone knows this "gingerbread house" - the dazzling colours, wavy architecture, eye-catching balconies, gorgeous rooftop, and a very good augmented reality tour. You won’t need to have visited Barcelona to recognise the building’s roof, the tiles of which are the scales of a great dragon. Like all of his work the inside and outside of Casa Batlló has that sinuous quality, with few straight lines, and dazzling attention to detail. *To get there: take metro line L2 (purple) from "Sagrada Família" to "Passeig de Gràcia" (all the trip about 12min). We recommend to get there by feet at least once thought - will take you about 25min, but on your way you will see 3 famous buildings of Antoni Gaudí - Casa de les Punxes, La Pedrera-Casa Milà and finally Casa Batlló. Walk down to Avenida Diagonal and continue on Passeig de Gràcia - great architecture, nice restaurants and luxury shops. ”
