Itinerary of the arts in Barcelona

Barcelona in a day: focus on the arts

 Duration:1 day Zone:Center    Offer Code:1-2

Focusing on the arts in Barcelona is really easy to do: between the museums, palaces, art galleries and the street artists, just choose what interests you the most and wherever you go, you will be surrounded by the beauty of this city that is so rich in culture. In this article, we can suggest a couple of itineraries you may like to follow at any time if you just want to visit Barcelona for a day and specifically, to focus on the art that can be seen all over the city.

Visiting Gaudí's works of art

Casa Batlló

Gaudí is the architect from Barcelona who has left his mark all over the city.  From Park Güell to the Casa Batlló, from the church of the Sagrada Familia to the Casa Milà: it is virtually impossible not to find yourself, almost by accident, in front of one of his works of art which will inevitably mean stopping to admire his breath-taking creations.  For any tourist who finds themselves in Barcelona just for a day and who wants to see the best of Antoni Gaudí's masterpieces, our advice would be to start by walking along the Passeig de Gracia. This elegant avenue doesn't just offer an opportunity to browse the wonderful shops in Barcelona, but is also the location of two of the artist's most famous and impressive buildings.  As you climb up from the center of the city towards the neighborhood of Gracia, you will come across the the Passeig de Gracia which is where you will see the Casa Batlló first and then La Pedrera.

See Gaudí's works on a Shared Tour

Among the many ideas on offer from when visiting Barcelona  are the daily proposals on offer that will enable you to gain entrance to Park Güell and the Sagrada Familia, accompanied by a bilingual guide and with transport included: these are the fascinating Shared Tours.

You can reach the Picasso Museum on the Metro and should get off at the Jaume I stop on the Yellow Line L4 and walk along the length of the Carrer de la Princesa.

Lovers of contemporary art and new technologies should also stop off at the CCCB, Barcelona's Center of Contemporary Culture which is situated just behind MACBA.  If, however, you are also interested in history, you should head towards La Rambla and walk towards the sea.  Here in the neighborhood of Barceloneta, where you will be able to visit the fascinating  Museum of Catalan History and you should go up to the top floor to admire the views of Port Vell at sunset.  The perfect way in which to end the day!  The metro stop of Barceloneta, on the Yellow Line L4, will take you back to the center or you can also hop on one of the numerous buses that stop along the coast.
