Art Museum
“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.”

Church
“One of the best surviving examples of the Catalan Gothic style, this graceful basilica stands out for its characteristic horizontal lines, plain surfaces, square buttresses and flat-topped octagonal towers. Its superb unity of style is down to the fact that it was built relatively quickly, with construction taking just 55 years (1329 to 1384). There’s also some stunning stained glass, especially the great 15th-century rose window above the main door. The original window fell down during an earthquake, killing 25. The incongruous modern window at the other end was a 1997 addition, belatedly celebrating the Olympics.”

“Cal Pep presents a new way of cooking, different from the typical format of appetizers, entreés, then dessert. We have a fresh and bright culinary view, an understanding cooking, with easy and quick preparations. Our restaurant concept grew from the idea of sharing the dishes, their tastes and flavors, in a ‘tapas’-style. ”

“Basque style tapas. Take a plate and help yourself, don't throw the pinchos (toothpicks) on the floor because that's how they know how much to charge you! Wash the tapas down with a sidra. The best of this style of restaurant in the area (though a Basque person will tell you that there is no good Basque tapas place in Barcelona).”

“Enjoy a beautiful and intimate flamenco show inside a seventeenth-century palace, the "Palau Dalmases", after a stroll through one of the most authentic and modern neighborhoods of Barcelona. This baroque palace located on the historic Calle Montcada is a rare architectural jewel that once was the meeting place of an aristocratic society of scholars. Complete the night enjoying a gourmet pintxos dinner with a drink in one of the best pintxo bars in Barcelona.”
