    You can bring your earphone if you want to have the audio tour. It's a must to do if you visit Barcelona. Preferably to go in the morning when it's less crowded.

    After seeing this unique home on the Sidecar Tour, we returned to gaze at it from outside longer. When we ended up with some extra time one day, we did the tour and it did not disappoint! The architectural structure is amazing. Worth the money and time.

    If George Lucas was truly impressed and influenced by the Gaudi chimneys and structures, you'll see it in the front of the Sagrada Familia and on the rooftop here. Darth Vader, stormtroopers. The rooftop lightshow is fun, and the view of the Madrid streets on a clear night is beautiful.

    Besides the famous “Block of Discord” with the Gaudi building, many of these buildings from the same period were often fanciful and over-the-top. If you chose to look above the street level shops, the buildings gave you a picture of a time at the turn of the 19th century when this area must have been THE place to live. I loved strolling this section of the city.

    The buildings in this area are all Art Nouveau architectural masterpieces. The period at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century saw the building of these homes for the new wealth of the city most of whom made their fortunes in the textile business. Just walk around and admire these great works.

    Attended the guided tour on a very warm Sunday evening. There was a small group of only 6 of us. I had downloaded the audio guide to my phone but audio guide equipment is provided if you forget to do this in advance. You're accompanied by a guide who opens and closes doors and ensures you're listening to the right recording at the right time and is also happy to answer any questions you might have about the house and artefacts you're visiting. Really interesting visit and finished off with a delicious hot chocolate included in the Sunday evening tours. Would definitely recommend a visit as it's a little less busy than next door which meant you could really get up close throughout the experience.

    If you get the Aerobus like we did the final stop is Plaza de Catalunya and it is the centre of the city. Loads of shopping streets & restaurants are nearby and the square itself has some nice buildings but probably not as stunning as Placa d'Espanya a mile up the road.

    Small and relatively expensive (12 euros) for what’s offered. Having said that, there are some nice pieces of furniture and stained glass. Also, they show work by Gaudi, Puig and another famous guy who I cannot remember right now. Also, we were introduced to some other reasonably decent creators of art deco. So what’s the bottom line? If you are coming to Barcelona for the first time and you are staying no more than 3 days, forget about this place. There are much better options for your time. Hell, the Picasso Museum is vastly superior. On the other hand, if you are coming back for a second or third time, like us, and you have used up most everything else, then what the heck, go. You get to kill 30-45 minutes of your day and if you enjoy this stuff, you will be satisfied with the time spent, if not the money.

    This is a spectacular example of the Modernista architecture and we walked by it many times during our stay. Once a few years ago we went to the rooftop bar for a drink on a warm evening and the view was extraordinary.

    This museum is a little more interesting than just doing history and art for the millionth time. There was no queue at all to enter so I don't think paying to skip the queue is necessary. The displays were all super interesting with different organs cut in different cross sections so you can see the internal structures. They have a large section on reproduction that includes preserved foetuses up to 8 months old, which I found extremely interested but may be offputting for some. The displays don't have a lot of info but there is an audioguide, but unfortunately it didn't work! It kept asking for a log in code to access the guide which wasn't on the ticket so I felt like I missed out on a lot, otherwise I would give this 5*

    El Corte Ingles or English court is the largest European Department Store chain. Though their flagship store is located in Madrid, the one in Barcelona is in tourist heavy Placa Catalunya area and always busy.

    The store I visited is very similar to Selfridges in London with its floor style and decoration. I bought some perfumes from the store as it was Black Friday. Variety and extensity is remarkable. Only bothersome thing for me was that the counters I visited hardly speak any English. I didn't expect fluency but the store of this caliber at such a tourist heavy area with many English speaking American and European visitors, come on hire staff who can at least understand borderline English.

    If Google Translate is in your phone, this place is great though.

    An amazing collection of instruments. Covering centuries and with items from all over the world. The room full of guitars was my favorite!

    Some very interesting pieces and a must for anyone interested in Egyptology. A nice quiet few hours of rest bite from the hustle and bustle on the streets. I was enthralled, but you may need a specialist interest in Ancient Egypt to fully appreciate this museum. Luckily it’s one of my great passions so I had a ball!
