Park Güell

Gaudí’s garden is captivating. And popular. Every half hour, a new group is admitted and booking online ahead of time is highly recommended.

Casa Battlo

Gaudi’s architectural masterpiece is a visual delight. Visit the museum or take it in from the street.

Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya

Look down to the city below from the terrace at this spectacular museum. See artistic works that span from the early Middle Ages to the early 20th century.

Museu d'Història de Barcelona

As well as the magnificent building itself, history surrounds as you walk through ruins of the old streets, sewers, and what were once laundries and wine- and fish-making factories.

Fundació Joan Miró

Miró’s vision was to create a place that would encourage younger artists to experiment with contemporary art. Here too, you can see his work and dedication to craft.

Museu Picasso Please

Take a guided tour or browse through the five medieval stone mansions to see 3500 of his works.
