    I think you might consider omitting the beach, you don't have time for that in 1.5 days. Some people love Parc Guell, I'm not one of them, so I wouldn't put that at the top of my list, you don't really have time to spend in a park, anyway.

    You should combine the Rambla, Boqueria (which is on it), and Palau Guell. The Palau de la Musica isn't too far away.


    I really liked the Catalan Museum if you mean the main big museum of Catalonia art. I found Sagrada Familia the most memorable of the Gaudi sites, so wouldn't miss that. The two apt buildings (Pedrera and Battlo) were very beautiful and interesting, but are expensive (I think Battlo is about 4 euro more than Pedrera, so if you need to only choose one and have no other way, that could do it). They are very near each other, but you could obviously do with only one of those. IN fact, seeing too many of these things in only 1.5 days, they may lose a little of their impact.

    YOu could combine the hospital with Sagrada Familia, they are in the general same direction.

    What do you mean by Catalan museum, anyway? I really liked the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya, if that's what you mean. There is also the Catalan history museum, which is completely different, of course. The national art museum is over in the park and will take a while to get to and return, but I think it's a good change from the other things you name, all the Gaudi buildings. I believe you pass that fountain on the way to it, or can (on the bus, anyway, I took the bus from plaza Espana).

    That's a lot to do in 1.5 days, and I don't know where you have to be for that match at 4 pm your first day. I think you could do the rambla (with the Boqueria and Palau Guell) and Palau de la Musica your first day before the match. Then the next day you could go to Sagrada Familia first thing (not sure if you have time for the hospital, maybe -- do those in the morning. Then go to the Catalonia Art Museum for the afternoon and see that fountain. Depending where you are staying, you could then see one of those Gaudi apt buildings after returning from the museum, they are open pretty late (until 8 pm) and you could eat around them, also. Last time I was there, I visited Casa Battlo around 6-7 pm and then had dinner nearby (in Tonorios, I quite like them). http://www.restaurantetenorio.com/
