General history museum, good for children as well. Most of the interesting pictures/maps are only in Spanish / Catalonia thus I was missing some parts of the story. In general its worth to go inside and a have a quick look.

other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing
games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away,
Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line
