Are you an art enthusiast who has always dreamed of exploring Europe’s most famous collections and unique architecture? Are you worried about being stuck in long lines at the Louvre in Paris or the Tate Modern in London?
Then you should absolutely consider a visit to Barcelona: Not only will you find sunshine and mouthwatering cuisine, you’ll also see some of the most impressive historic art in the world. Throughout the whole city, you’ll find traces of Catalan Modernism dating back to the 1800’s. You’ve heard of Gaudí and have probably seen his iconic buildings on your Instagram feed. But Barcelona also offers a wide selection of less visited museums and an exciting, new art scene to get lost in.
