Barcelona II.

In this part, I’ll write about the other sights I saw in Barcelona. They are not related to Gaudí but they certainly are worth a visit!

Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (National Art Museum of Catalonia)

Since 1934 Palau Nacional serves as an art gallery and is now one of the largest museums in Spain. It has a Romanesque, a Gothic, a Renaissance and a Modern collection (with Picasso and Dalí pieces as well). The current additional exhibition shows the work of Ismael Smith, an artist from Barcelona and is called The beauty and the monsters.

Mercado de La Bogueria (Market)

The most popular market of Barcelona can be found while walking along La Rambla. It specialises in fresh fruit, sweets and seafood. It’s the perfect place for a daily smoothie!

The dock

After you bought your smoothie, keep on walking on La Rambla, until you reach the Columbus Monument (it is 60 meters tall, you won’t miss it!) and the dock. Surrounded by palm trees and seagulls flying very close to you, you will get the ultimate summer vibe.

Sant Sebastiá beach

It is basically the end of the coastline, but if you are looking for a more peaceful beach, this one is for you!

Barceloneta beach

Barcelona’s oldest and most popular beach inspired Cervantes to write a fight scene for Don Quixote and the Knight of the White Moon. If you spot the Wonderwoman building, you are at the right place!
