Barcelona hosts many prestigious art galleries and museums, tracing the city’s history from Roman times right through to the modern day. Some of the world’s most famous artists have called Catalonia their home, including Pablo Picasso, the surrealist Salvador Dali and the inspired modernist architect Antoni Gaudi – the visionary creator of the Sagrada Familia. The Picasso Museum in the Gothic Quarter is unmissable; the National Museum of Catalan Art has one of the world’s most comprehensive collections of medieval and roman art, whilst the Fundació Joan Miró has a collection of more than 10,000 of his works. Even today, the city is home to a vibrant community of artists of all styles and displays an incredible range of street art.Read more
You don’t need to enter a museum to see Barcelona’s most spectacular art however. The modernist architecture of Gaudi and his peers fills the city’s streets. WE Barcelona offer a number of cultural experiences and tours to discover the Sagrada Familia, Casa Battló, Casa Milà and much more, where expert guides bring alive the art and history of the city. These small group tours move at the pace of the group, stopping in both the areas of interest of the guide and also of the group participants, and focusing on the areas of city are the people are most interested in visiting.
