There is so much to see and discover in Barcelona, it's best to go there and explore, starting with an open topped bus. On arrival, it's also a good idea to buy a pass that permits unlimited travel on the very efficient underground system, and less speedy buses.
Wandering around the city, there's lots to amaze and astound, here's a photo of a bridge over the road called 'Carrer del Bisbe':
Photos can't be taken inside, but here is one of the outside of the building:
The museum appears to be a little known gem, unlike other places is very quiet, no queues, with plenty of beautiful pieces to see on 3 floors:
A mirror with a swan's tail lit up on top, very hard to photograph so it can be seen. Not mentioned in the guidebook.
By contrast, the Picasso Museum was very crowded, and it took about 30 minutes of queuing to get inside. There are many of his earliest drawings and painting as well as many key works from various different periods. www.museupicasso.bcn.cat
The Botanic Gardens describe themselves as 'All the Mediterraneans in the World', they opened in 1999 and would benefit from a longer visit than we gave them
