I liked the visit, it is a good experience for me. I recommend that you find out more information to confirm if you would really like to see the pieces there. The collections is very interesting, and they are located in the last floors.

Inaugurated in 1946, The Museu Frederic Marès is rather curious, is extensive with numerous collections.

You have got to think... who collects all of this and so many of the same type of thing? Glasses, pipes, jesuses hanging from the cross, nude sculptures, pictures, ... don't come rushed.

The guide book indicated this museum has the largest collection of religious art but it has more than that and a lot of it. It is a nice window into the rich religiosity of the early days of the Spanish Empire.

Worth the cost (€4 + €1 for audio device) . Huge collection of old stuff. Starts with sculptures and religious pieces, lots and lots. Then the collection turns to a very wide assortment of things from 19th century life - like a room full of...More

A Seriously big collection. The start of the museum is totally religious, the more you go up the more there is to see. But sometimes it's to much at once.

The museum is divided into two sections. One section is sculpture. The other is collections. We did not see the sculpture. This man was a consummate collector. There were all kinds of items where he accumulated hundreds of items. There was everything from early studio...More

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local

€4.20 for adults. It doesn't vary on Saturday. If you have a Barcelona card it gives you entry with no additional cost.
