"Barcelona is the city of Gaudi..." Art / Architecture Tip by Zoe_bcn

Art / Architecture, Barcelona: 26 reviews and 36 photos


<font color=green>Barcelona is the city of Gaudi and Modernism: the Eixample is the largest 'open air' museum of Modernism in the world, and to celebrate its 150th birthday, this year Barcelona is preparing a year dedicated to the personality and work of Gaudi with an extensive programm of exhibitions, studies, seminars... which will be open to the public during this year.

The city's cultural agenda offers a large variety of shows, popular festivals (great events such as the Grec summer Festival from July to August), theatre, dance, music, opera, flamenco....

Interesting museums to visit: Museu Picasso, Fundació Joan Miró, MNAC (the largest collection of Roman art in the world), MACBA (periodical contemporary art exhibitions).....

I attach a little map of Barcelona where you can see most of the Modernism buidings.....</font>
