Park Güell is one of Antoni Gaudí’s most important architectural works.
Park Güell is one of Antoni Gaudí’s iconic works. It is the dream of a genius that has become one of the symbols of Barcelona. Over 100 years ago Gaudí was commissioned by Eusebi Güell to build a residential area for well-to-do families. Güell wanted to recreate a British garden and this is why it has the English name “Park” Güell (and not “Parc” in Catalan).
The residential project eventually turned into a huge private garden that Güell ceded for public events. At the same time it began to appear as one of the city’s attractions in tourist guides. The heirs to Eusebi Güell’s estate offered the space to the City Council and in 1926 it was opened as a municipal park.
The park was recognised as an artistic monument in 1969 and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1984.
El Born Centre de Cultura i Memòria
The building that houses the Born Cultural and Memory Centre used to be the old Born Market, opened in 1876.
The Born Centre de Cultura i Memòria, or Born Cultural and Memory Centre, brings to the city a means of encouraging and promoting reflection on local and national memories, and memories of events that affect human communities around the world.
The building that houses the Born Cultural and Memory Centre used to be the old Born Market, opened in 1876. It forms part of other architectural masterpieces from a time in its history when Barcelona became part of modern Europe. An archaeological site has been found in the subsoil containing the remains of the outline of Barcelona’s streets and houses in 1700, which are testament both to life in the city and to the consequences of the 1714 siege.
Barcelona History Museum (MUHBA) Domus de Sant Honorat
In this space the remains of a large Roman domus house and several commercial premises from the 4th century are preserved.
On 23 April 2010 this new archaeological space was opened, measuring 680 m2 and located nearby Plaça de Sant Jaume. Josep Llinàs’s architectural project includes a route that allows you to see the most outstanding elements of a Roman domus house. The itinerary is similar to that at the Plaça del Rei site: a raised walkway guides you through the ancient structures, with the foundations still visible on the floor.
The house, owned by an important city character, was built in the 4th century, during a prosperous and dynamic time for the small Roman city. Six tanks for storing all kinds of products have been conserved from the 13th to the 14th century.
Barcelona Zoo has one of the biggest animal collections in Europe, and is also well-known as the former home of “Snowflake”, the albino gorilla.
Barcelona Zoo is in Ciutadella Park. It has one of the biggest animal collections in Europe, and is also well-known as the former home of “Snowflake”, the albino gorilla. The Zoo opened on the Day of La Mercè [Our Lady of Mercy] in 1892, in an area that had been part of the 1888 Universal Expo.
Over the years, the zoo has evolved, adapting to the demands of social reality, and has gradually placed greater focus and dedication on its main mission: research, conserving endangered species, educating and informing.
Zoos are now focused on preserving nature around the world and combating the loss of natural habitats, as they are reservoirs of biodiversity. Zoos are also places for family leisure and, therefore, an important part of the awareness-raising and conservation strategies for the most endangered wildlife species.
All the zoo’s installations are adapted for people with reduced mobility.
Frederic Marès Museum
The Frederic Marès Museum preserves and displays the collections gathered by its founder, the sculptor Frederic Marès.
The Frederic Marès Museum, located in part of the old Palau Reial Major, the royal palace of the counts of Barcelona, is a unique collector’s museum that still houses the pieces gathered by its founder, the sculptor Frederic Marès (1893-1991), who, through his donation, became part of Barcelona’s heritage in 1946.
Frederic Marès accrued an extensive collection of Hispanic sculpture, from ancient times to the nineteenth century, in which religious polychrome predominates, forming the largest single section of the museum. Marès also donated part of his own sculptural work, which is displayed in his library office.
Tens of thousand of objects are displayed in the collector’s office, forming a huge collection of collections and documenting ways of life and customs from the past, mainly from the 19th century.
Barcelona Design Museum
Barcelona Design Museum combines decorative arts, ceramics, product design, textiles, clothing and graphic arts collections.
Barcelona Design Museum is the museum of the arts of object and design, the product of combining the collections from the city’s Decorative Arts Museum, the Ceramics Museum, the Textiles and Clothing Museum and the Graphic Arts Office.
The museum has a collection of more than 70,000 objects that have traditionally been classified under the category decorative or applied arts and which date from the 4th century to the present day, with unique, internationally-renowned collections, such as medieval textiles, Catalan enamelled glass from the 16th century and Alcora pottery, among others.
Barcelona History Museum (MUHBA) El Call
Barcelona History Museum El Call is the best starting point on your journey to discover how Barcelona’s Jewish community lived in medieval times.
The seat of the Barcelona History Museum at El Call, located on the site of the house of veil weaver Jucef Bonhiac, looks at the trajectory of Jews during the city’s history and the splendour of their cultural legacy, which has lasted until the modern day and is of great value to all of us.
El Call, the Jewish Quarter, has kept its name from when it was the neighbourhood in which Barcelona’s Jews lived. First settling in the city in ancient times, Jews had a very active role in the urban community of the Middle Ages. Traces of the medieval El Call can still be seen in the streets and abundant documentation is kept in the city’s archives.
Museu Etnològic i de Cultures del Món- Parc Montjuïc
Barcelona’s Ethnology Museum uses anthropology as an indispensable science to get to know the society we live in.
Barcelona’s Ethnology Museum, by comparing objects, offers us an opportunity to reflect on aspects of human life that are different and exotic to us due to geographical, cultural and chronological distance, as well as those that are familiar to all of us.
Looking at objects that once formed part of daily life in generations gone by makes us think about how our way of adapting to our environment has changed and how humanity continues to seek solutions to universal problems, such as resource management, food, dress and domestic life. The museum was designed so that the objects displayed act as a basis for discovering meanings; a call to the visitor to reflect on their everyday life and allow them to engage in the anthropological discourses linked to the exhibitions.
Museu de la Música
Barcelona’s Music Museum is Barcelona City Council’s institution dedicated to experimentation and reflection on musical activities.
Barcelona’s Music Museum is Barcelona City Council’s institution dedicated to experimentation and reflection on musical activities. It is a meeting and debating place devoted to knowledge and aesthetic enjoyment that should allow city residents to learn more about how music constructs our individual and social emotions, enabling us to decide their ways, values and interlocutors. As well as contemplating instruments and documents and preserving heritage, the objects also open up a dialogue between emotion and reflection surrounding music.
The museum acts as a space to relate to music that you will want to go back to time and again. A reception space, the museum attracts visitors and offers a gateway to the other activities and contents in this ‘city of music’. The Auditori plays host to various concert programmes, whilst ESMUC offers higher education and the library opens up a world of reference musical documents.
We want people to feel at home, we want visitors to find in the Music Museum a place where they can relate to Catalan culture (made, thought or experienced in Catalonia throughout the ages), a window open to the musical cultures all around us.
Tibidabo Amusement Park
The Tibidabo Amusement Park offers a privileged view of the city as well as attractions and activities for the whole family.
The Tibidabo Amusement Park is a magical and iconic venue in the city. A hundred years old, it is one of the oldest of its kind in the world. Constantly evolving, it has attractions for all ages, top-notch shows and a travelling animation that turns the attractions route into another one of the park’s shows.
The park also puts a variety of services at the disposal of its visitors, such as restaurants and picnic areas.
The Camí del Cel del Tibidabo, 500 metres above sea level, offers the best views of the city and on a clear day it is possible to see the peaks on the island of Mallorca.
Some of the historical attractions, such as the hall of mirrors, the Talaia, the 1928 aeroplane and the Automaton Museum are already part of the city’s collective memory.
Please Note : The Amusement Park will be closed from January 6 until February 28, 2022
MUHBA’s Shelter 307
Shelter 307 is a fine example of the air-raid shelters built in Barcelona during the Spanish Civil War.
Shelter 307 is one of the air-raid shelters built to protect Barcelona residents from bombs during the Spanish Civil War. It was excavated thanks to the work of numerous local residents.
It contains 200 metres of tunnels that are 2.1 metres high and between 1.5 and 2 metres wide. There were various living areas, including toilets, a drinking fountain, an infirmary, a children’s room and a fireplace.
On walking around the shelter, it is easy to imagine the living conditions within those walls and the distress of a city that was confronted with a new phenomenon during the Civil War: the indiscriminate bombing of the civilian population, a military tactic that had only been used briefly during the First World War.
Royal Monastery of St Mary of Pedralbes
The Royal Monastery of St Mary of Pedralbes is one of the city’s most historical and important buildings.
Founded in 1327 by Queen Elisenda of Montcada to support the Poor Clare Nuns, it was opened to the public in 1983 as a museum and place of cultural interest. Today, one of the monastery’s main attractions is the insight the museum provides into the everyday lives of the community of Poor Clare nuns, where you can even walk through their dormitories, the refectory and other rooms.
The building is one of the finest examples of Catalan Gothic architecture, with its church, cloister and three floors offering one of the most spacious and harmonious examples of this style. One of the most interesting features of the church is the Sepulchre of Queen Elisenda, which has two sides; one giving onto the church and showing her dressed as a sovereign, and the other giving onto the cloister and showing here as a widow and penitent. Equally interesting are the 14th century stained glass windows, various sepulchres of noble families and the three choirs stalls: the upper choir, the lower choir and the friar’s choir.
Jardí Botànic – Museu de Ciències Naturals de Barcelona
The Botanical Garden is heir to a long tradition of gardens designed for studying, maintaining and preserving plant species.
To fit in with modern times and meet scientific and sustainability criteria, the Botanical Garden has moved on from collecting exotic plants and botanical rarities – an activity typical of the natural science museums of the 18th and 19th centuries – and adopted a more scientific approach that follows sustainability criteria.
The Botanical Garden specialises in showcasing the biodiversity of Mediterranean flora. It enables dozens of species found in all the city’s gardens to be put in their proper geographical context. These are plants that have adapted perfectly to temperate climates despite being native to other shores.
Barcelona History Museum (MUHBA) – Plaça del Rei
The monumental site in Plaça del Rei is the founding nucleus of the MUHBA and has been since the museum was set up in 1943.
The Barcelona History Museum (MUHBA) preserves, studies, documents, promotes and exhibits the city’s historical heritage, from the origins of the city through to the present day. The museum has various important historical heritage sites, located around the city’s neighbourhoods and districts. The main museum building is the Casa Padellàs, one of a series of building forming the monumental site in Plaça del Rei, in the Gothic quarter.
The historian Agustí Duran i Sanpere was behind the initial project and was the first director of the museum, which opened on 14 April 1943.
Viewpoint – Collserola Tower – Torre de Collserola
The Collserola Tower, the tallest building in Barcelona, has a public viewpoint where you can enjoy magnificent views.
The Collserola Telecommunications Tower is 288 metres high and 560 metres above sea level. It was built by the architect Norman Foster for the Barcelona ’92 Olympic Games.
On the tenth floor, at a height of 115 metres, there is a public viewpoint, with a panoramic 360-degree view. On a clear day, you can see 70 kilometres away and enjoy magnificent views of the Barcelona Metropolitan Area, Collserola Park, Montserrat and even the Cadí-Moixeró mountain range.
You can reach the viewpoint using a panoramic glass lift, which takes two and a half minutes to rise from the tower’s base to the tenth floor.
MUHBA’s Roman Sepulchral Way
Funeral monuments from the Ancient Roman city of Barcino survive on the Roman Sepulchral Way, in Plaça de la Vila de Madrid.
Between the 1st and 3rd centuries BC, many lower and middle-class citizens of the Roman city of Barcino were buried on either side of a road that led from the colony to the present-day area of Sarrià. Some of these funeral monuments still survive on the Roman Sepulchral Way, in Plaça de la Vila de Madrid.
Altar stones, stelas and cupae, semi-circular monuments, remained hidden for centuries under a Barefoot Carmelite convent, until the necropolis was discovered at the end of the 1940s, when the square was undergoing redevelopment.
There is an Interpretation Centre next to the archaeological site, where the artefacts found there are exhibited and the territorial layout of Barcino and the complex world of Roman funerals are explained.
Blau Museum explains Earth’s evolution and life from its origins right up to the present day.
Blau Museum, located in the Fòrum Park, is the old home of the Barcelona Natural Sciences Museum. It is a modern, open and dynamic facility, which shows us the most rigorous science in a fun way.
The museum’s permanent exhibition, entitled ‘Living Planet’, takes you on a journey to discover and understand nature’s secrets using audiovisual and interactive resources that tie into the innovative museum discourse.
The museum also hosts temporary exhibitions, conferences and workshops. It houses a mediatheque, the Science Nest space for children from 0 to 6 years old, and a function room.
Museu Etnològic i de Cultures del Món- Montcada
The Museum of World Cultures showcases the artistic and cultural diversity of the peoples of Africa, Asia, America and Oceania.
Founded in 2012 in La Ribera, the Museum of World Cultures brings together a selection of more than 30,000 pieces from the Ethnology Museum, originating from Asia, America, Africa and Oceania, and 2,356 works from the Folch Collection, the most important non-Western art collection in Catalonia.
Within this heritage, there is a representative collection of 19th and 20th century Western and Central African arts, alongside Mayan ceremonial hatchets and Chimú textiles from the pre-Columbian collection. The Asian section takes you on a tour from Buddhist Gandhāra images and Indian Hindu sculpture to Tibetan and Japanese art. Pieces from Oceania include painted bark from Australia and Rapa Nui wooden mo’ai sculptures from Easter Island.
Sitting atop one of the highest points of the mountain and looking out to sea, Montjuïc Castle is a site of special historic interest.
The Castell de Montjuïc, or Montjuïc Castle, is on the highest part of the hill, facing out to sea and dominating the whole city. A 17th-century fortress built by the military engineer Juan Martín Cermeño, the Castle has lived through numerous important historical events and been a key witness to various periods.
Witness to critical moments, it functioned as a prison for anarchists during the 19th century and in 1940, after the Spanish Civil War, the president of the Generalitat, Lluís Companys, was shot there along with many other political prisoners under the Franco regime.
Today it can be visited as a place of historical interest and, if you make your way up to the highest point of Montjuïc, you will be rewarded by one of the most impressive views of Barcelona’s port and harbour you can get.
