A Fascinating Barrio In Barcelona-3edyy

Travel-and-Leisure The Barrio has a labyrinthine street plan with many narrow streets mostly closed to regular traffic opening out into squares. Its amazing how great it feels when you walk around and get lost, surrounded by the numerous shops, bar, monuments and museums that are scattered around! We re.mend a visit to the Santa Eulalia Cathedral (Plaza de la Seu 3, Metro 1 Red or 3 Green, Plaa Catalunya station), a marvellous gothic cathedral built from the 13th to 15th century, though the gothic faade is much more recent and dates 19th century. Just a stones throw is the renovated Mercat de Santa Caterina (Av. Francesc Camb 16, mercatsantacaterina.net, Metro 4 Yellow, Jaume I station), Enric Miralles multicolored wave-roofed creation opened in 2005. Lit by shafts of light that flood through the pine rafters, it seems un.monly spacious for a market, with tapas bars arranged around the outside. If youre keen on museums, near the cathedral theres also the Museu dHistoria de la Ciutat (Plaa del Rei, museuhistoria.bcn.es , ticket 8, Metro 4 Yellow, Jaume I station): the charming underground tour unfolds along paved Roman roads, through the remains of Roman houses, bathrooms, sewers and up to the old city walls. The Palau de la Musica Catalana (C/Palau de la Musica 4-6, home.palaumusica.org , guided visits Monday to Sunday, 10am to 3.30pm every half hour, ticket 8, Metro 1 Red or 4 Yellow, Urquinaona station), built by architect Llus Domnech i Montaner between 1905 and 1908, is a masterpiece of Modernism and one of the worlds leading concert halls. In 1997 the Palau was declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco. If art is your thing, than you cannot miss the nearby Picasso Museum (C/ Montcada 15-23, museupicasso.bcn.es/index , open Tuesday to Sunday 10am to 8pm, ticket 6, Metro 4 Yellow, Jaume I station), that holds the truth on the formative years of Pablo Ruiz Picasso. The more than 3,500 works that make up the permanent collection reveal A few minutes walk from the museum you .e across a beautiful example of Catalonian gothic church, Santa Maria del Mar (Plaa Santa Maria 1, Metro 4 Yellow, Jaume I station). The interior of the church is of an extraordinary beauty and has exceptional acoustic conditions that make of it an ideal space for concerts usually of classical and Oriental music, but occasionally also jazz. One of the best places to drink a coffee or a pint and relax is Plaa Reial (Metro 3 Green, Liceu station), a Neoclassical square with palms and porticoes. Here you can admire some unusual street lamps known for being the first works of Gaud, who, while still a student of architecture, had won a urban design .petition and subsequently designed the Plaa. In last few years many areas of Barcelona have been developing a new ac.modation formula, which has been qidely accepted by young travellers.
