Tips to know when travelling to Barcelona

Barcelona travel tips

1) See the works by young Picasso at the eponymous museum in Barcelona

Pablo Picasso spent several years in Barcelona, studying at the La Llotja art academy. The local museum, devoted to the artist, accumulated over 4,200 of his works. Most of them were written between 1895 and 1904. The museum buildings themselves are also worth attention. Since its opening in 1963, the museum has gradually occupied five Gothic palaces, dating from the 13th to the 15th century. A wonder ensemble, matching the genius of the renowned artist!

2) Explore the Parc de la Ciutadella in Barcelona

The Parc de la Ciutadella is an 18-hectare green oasis in the megacity, ideal for walks and picnics. Besides, you can row a boat on the picturesque lake. However, the park has much more to offer: the zoo, the geological museum and the Catalan Parliament. The building of the latter also houses the Museu d'Art Modern. Don’t miss some remarkable modernist buildings in the western part of the park: the Castle of the Three Dragons, the Hivernacle (glasshouse) and the Umbracle (plant house).

3) Set menus for lunch will save your money in Barcelona

Menu del dia (menu of the day) might be the best way to explore the local cuisine. Some cafes and restaurants offer a set lunch for just 15 euro! You can have the main course, a dessert, and complimentary drinks. Bon appetit!
