A spare day (or maybe a day and a half) in Barcelona

Jump to last reply

We've got at least a day to spare in a business trip to Barcelona.

We're planning a 2 hr walking tour of the Barrio Gotic, then onto the MNAC for a couple of hours (pretty much the longest I can stay in a museum before Museum Head kicks in) with the Romanesque stuff. Probably an hour or so at the Boqueria in between. We've got to be at the airport by 1830, so that pretty much wraps the day up

We're both pretty Gaudi-ed out, and I've never seen the point of the Ramblas But in the possibility we get an extra half day to ourselves, I thought maybe the Museu d'idees i invents de Barcelona and maybe the Archaeology Museum.

Food, what we call pre-Reformation art (I'm seriously allergic to anything Spanish post about 1550, though Mrs F quite likes some of it if it doesn't bring out her Inner Prod too much) and the odd bit of eccentricty. The Museu de la Xocolata doesn't appeal.

Anything I'm obviously missing? Staying near Zona Universitaria metro
