Gaudí and some more museums
And so back to Barcelona for another day of museum hopping. I’d bought a Barcelona Art Passport which gets you in to a number of attractions. I don’t recall the saving being massive, but find they’re really good at encouraging you to go to more places and places you wouldn’t otherwise consider.
Casa Milà #
Barcelona is the city of Gaudí - you can spot his unmistakable buildings all over. I’m not a fan of the free-flowing architecture, but they do have some nice details. Gaudí’s buildings are pricey to enter, so I only visited Casa Milà (as well as La Sagrida Familia and the free Park Güell).
Transbordador Aeri del Port #
You can take a cable car from the marina to half way up Montjuic. There was quite a queue (that the operator does a good job of hiding) so the actual journey was far longer than walking would have been.
Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys #
The main entrance to the Olympic stadium is open to visitors - you get a good view of the arena and medal podiums.
Joan Miró Foundation #
The Joan Miró Foundation has a great collection of Miró’s as well as a great roof terrace.
Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya #
The Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya had an artist recreating an oil painting live in front of the other patrons. I’ve not seen this done before but found it captivating.
Tucked away at the side of the museum is a small sign for ‘roof terrace’ - which leads to a great panoramic views of the city.
