Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya.

This Museum stands right on the top of Mont Juic. They've rescued loads of bits of old Roman/Romanesque country churches which were all painted inside and put them back up. No intellectual Zen simplicity here - astonishing bright colours and uncompromising faces, pain, ecstacy and humour, the immediacy of 6th-10th century worship socked home to you via the solar plexus.

This is essential viewing for history buffs wanting to "feel" the crossover from Roman times to Modern times. Forget the "Dark" Ages, once you've seen these you'll never think of them as dark again. A stunning, airy, spacious place, they have Gothic art as well, with some lovely Madonna & Child statues which deserve shrines rather than museum displays.

Admission: 8.50
Open: Tuesday-Saturday 10am-7pm, Sunday 10am-2:30pm, Monday closed
Tel: 93 622 03 76

The Picasso Museum.

As one would probably predict based on the name of the place, the Picasso Museum has nothing but Picasso paintings. Make sure you set aside a few hours to accomodate this event. Waiting in line is at least a good half hour or so, and tourists should watch out for pickpockets. There is a gift shop that sells images of Picasso's works as postcards, as well as many other souveneir items. There are many side shops that sell the same thing, and sometimes they are cheaper.

Admission: 6.00
Open: Tuesday-Sunday 10am-8pm, Closed on Mondays
Tel: 93 256 30 00
