    On our way back to the city centre from Torre Bellesguard we walked the 30 minutes (mainly because we couldn't get a taxi) to Casa Vicens for another dose of Gaudi.

    Very different to Bellesguard in that there is a lot of colour throughout Casa Vicens as opposed to the more 'cement' look of Bellesguard. This being Gaudis first design you can see its influences of his later buildings Casa Batllo and Mila with his signature nature influence and colours.

    The route throughout the building is straightforward, starting in the gardens you go up throught the building room by room onto the roof which in usual Gaudi style is a highlight.

    When we arrived we were told it was online booking only so got our phones out and booked tickets there and then and walked in, which seemed a little silly but there you go.

    Another fantastic building to visit in Barcelona, at 18 euro a person it is a little on the expensive side but you only have to do it once.

    The museum (Fundació de Joan Miró) is situated on the hill overlooking Barcelona and can be reached by taxi, bus, metro (with a walk) and the Montjuïc Furnicular Railway. There are all the usual facilities, toilets, lockers, café. The restaurant just off the self service café can be booked from 1.00, in a nice room overlooking the gardens, with table service and menu offering great Catalan food. For us, it made the visit complete.

    There’s a pleasant, shortish walk through a park to the other main museum in the area, the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya, although we split our visit over two days as there’s rather a lot to see in both.

    A must for art lovers and a great half day out.

    First, I was very critical of the Caixa Forum in Barcelona, but when we arrived it convinced me to be a super decision!

    Given the supreme association of Barcelona with Catalan Modernism, looked forward to seeing how this is presented here.

    But regrettably found that it was closed. A staff woman in next-door shop thought it is closed for a duration, but couldn’t verify that.

    The museum had nice art but it’s not a must do if you are in Barcelona. It has very beautiful Picasso art but is a little small so maybe good for an afternoon quick activity. It also gets pretty crowded

    We had a lovely visit and really enjoyed it. Sadly, this gem museum of talented but mostly little known artists does not seem to get the attention it deserves. We were the only ones there on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. That is tragic. Support the arts!

    So pleased that we were staying not far away and decided to go and see the temporary exhibition of photography by Paolo Gasparini. A friendly and warm welcome from all that we had contact with at this great exhibition space, and we both found the exhibition revealing, stunning as well as impacting and moving. In our view the exhibition is very, very well curated and a visit is highly recommended.

    In an extraordinary building, sleek and modern, interesting exhibitions were underway.

    Works by Bouchra Khalili a Moroccan born artist comprise aspects of anti-colonial resistance and solidarity.

    Pieces by two Columbian artists are here. María Teresa Hincapié has a major display of oeuvre. In Silence but Together is a large composition by Maria Jose Arjona.

    Elena del Rivero's Letters to the Mother is an absorbing and striking creation.

    We explored the ‘Pericot: Expanded Art, Kinetic and Cubernetic Art’ exhibition at the gallery experience. We were welcomed by friendly staff, and explored the exciting exhibition. None of the exhibition writing or sound was in English, but we still appreciated the art work even without the context.

    We loved dining at the rooftop location. The location and ambiance was wonderful. Unfortunately, our paella was salty, the rice was undercooked and lacked seafood portions. The service was scarce. We had three different servers and getting any of their attention was difficult. But it was a nice experience and we enjoyed nice cocktails and desert.

    My husband and I bought the Articket BCN, this is one of the places that are included with this pass. We went after seeing the overcrowded Casa Batllo, it was a wonderful peaceful experience. It is very close to the Casa Batllo.
    We are new to seeing Antonio Tapies Works, but enjoyed trying to figure them out. There was a film in the auditorium that showed him doing a piece, with an excellent pictorial explanation of where he got his ideas and then how it transformed onto the canvas. Our favorite piece was in the lower level. It was a photography show about an incredible endeavor to create a self sustaining environment in the middle east desert. It is in a large room with the screen filling one entire wall. There are cushions for one to sit on and just take in the show. It does help to understand what you are seeing, if you read the information, which is presented in the foyer of this hall.
