Fodor's Review

Here, in a building off the left side (north) of the cathedral, you can browse for hours among the miscellany assembled by the early-20th-century sculptor-collector Frederic Marès. Everything from paintings and polychrome wood carvings—such as Juan de Juní's 1537 masterpiece Pietà and the Master of Cabestany's late-12th-century Apparition of Christ to His Disciples at Sea—to Marès's personal collection of pipes and walking sticks is stuffed into this surprisingly rich potpourri. The courtyard of this former Royal Palace of the Counts of Barcelona is lovely—the café-terrace in back is a perfect place for a break.
