If you speak Spanish, there is a once a week evening tour of a restored apt in Casa Mila that is well worth the visit. (It may be on Thursday, better check. You see inside the apt, then go up on the roof and get wonderful views of the city from vantage points specifically designed by Gaudi to frame the view.

More things to do:
visit the Cathedral at noon on Sunday, to watch the dancers in front. Do toss a couple of euros in the basket to pay the band.
Go to the Miro museum, it will make you smile.

It seems you are doing a bit of backtracking between sights (although the metro is convenient). Get a good map and try to do everything in one area before moving onto the next area. Near Casa Mila is a great restaurant with menu del dia at lunch for about 7.5E Monday thru Friday. La Rita at C. Arago, 279 (1/2 block off P Gracia). Walk 3 blocks south from Casa Mila on Pau Claris. Hours - 1-3:45 and 8:30-10:30. White tablecloths and in reviews described as elegant, but affordable.

I would also make going to Casa Batllo a priority. It is really quite amazing and I think the inside more interesting than Casa Milo.

Montjuic is interesting. Glad you are not planning on doing the castle in Montjuic. We were just there two weeks ago and the tram up to the castle is under major repair. We walked up there which turned into a minor fiasco.

We ate at both Comerc24 and Cinc Sentits. Both excellent meals and very different. I recommend doing the tasting menus at both!!

kybourbon: thanks for the input. any suggestions for better grouping? I actually got this from someone who lives in Barcelona, but I don't think he goes out too much.

I was just in Barcelona for four nights. I'd suggest going to the Picasso museum before it opens in the morning at 10. There was quite a long line and wait when we got there at 10. Many museums seem to be closed on Mondays and many restaurants seem to be closed on Sundays. I emailed our hotel and made sure we had reservations for dinner on the Sunday we got there.

We went to the Picasso in the very late afternoon and walked in with no line. If you go 90 minutes before closing time, that should give you plenty of time (unless you are a major Picasso fan).
