  • Gothic Quarter: At the centre of Barcelona’s old city you’ll find the sprawling streets of the Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic) These narrow, cobbled streets are stocked with shops, bars, restaurants, and plenty of historical landmarks, including the largest Roman excavation outside of Rome under the Museu d'Història de Barcelona.

  • Magic Fountain (Font Magica): Opened in 1929, the Magic Fountain of Montjuïc has been wowing crowds with its incredible colour, light, music, and water shows for almost a century!

  • Camp Nou: Explore Camp Nou, the largest stadium in Europe and the homeground of Barcelona F.C., with the brilliant Camp Nou stadium tour, topped with a visit to the FC Barcelona Museum!

  • Parc de Montjuïc: With its beautiful gardens and stunning views, Montjuïc Hill is the perfect escape from the bustling streets of the city below. The park is home to an impressive collection of national museums, including the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya held in the Palau Nacional and the Fundacio Joan Miró.

Barcelona's Top Galleries & Museums

  • Fundacio Joan Miró: This hilltop museum acts as a contemporary showcase for the late Catalan artist Joan Miró. Miró was a world renowned painter, sculptor, and ceramicist, perhaps best remembered for his pieces ‘The Harlequin’s Carnival’ (1925) and ‘The Farm’ (1922).

  • Museu Picasso: Occupying five large medieval mansions on the carrer de Montcada is one of the world’s largest collections of work by the Spanish artist Pablo Picasso, co-founder of the Cubist movement and amongst the most recognisable and influential artists of the 20th century.

  • Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya: Currently located in the Palau Nacional de Montjuïc, the MNAC holds a collection of over 5000 pieces covering over 1000 years of art. Some of the museum’s most important pieces include Romanesque murals and examples of early Catalan modernism.

  • Museu Marítim: This massive maritime museum in the medieval harbour of Drassane is notable not only for its full-size replica galleon, but for the original art, maps, and models it holds that track Spain’s history of navigation.
