Things to do in Barcelona

  • Barcelona Zoo Barcelona Zoo Barcelona, Spain
    In today's society, the main goal or objective of a zoo is the education of those coming here and the constant research and protection of the endangered species of the world. Barcelona is no different when it comes to that, with veterinary research studies, research in higher primates, adherence to the World Zoo Conservation Strategy, international and European programs that deal with the breeding and preservation of endangered species that are almost extinct and studies involving mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians. The Barcelona zoo is also available for education programs that allow for the activities of schoolchildren, and out of school activities for children on the weekends and holiday recesses; plus two kinds of programs that are geared towards adults, personnel training courses that lead to future zoo keepers and educational workers; plus educational courses in zoology that can be studied through the school year or during the summer. They also offer marvelous excursions and field trips of special interest to all people. European programs for breeding include the gila monster, Mhorr's gazelle, the black vulture, Rothchild's giraffe, giant anteater, and the pigmy hippopotamus. Programs for recording captive animals include; the mangabeys, bontebok, siamang and greater kudu. Part of their work includes the preservation of endangered species and then bringing them back into nature and these include; the Eurasian otter, cattle egret, Majorcan midwife toad, little egret, Hermann's tortoise, night heron, fallow deer and white stork. The zoo was the home of the world's only albino lowland gorilla, Snowflake, and it is unfortunate for the world and all of its inhabitants that this aging primate passed on in 2003.

  • City History Museum
    The city of Barcelona, Spain has two different stories as to how it was started, and the first involves Hercules some 400 years before the city of Rome was built; and the other involves the Carthaginian Hamilcar Barca, the father of Hannibal, that named the area Barcino after his family, during the 3rd century BC. In 15 BC., Romans came here and redrew the village as a "castrum" or military camp that was centered around the mons taber or small hill that is near the contemporary city hall, Placa de Sant Jaume. While the Romans ruled, it became Faventia or fully, Colonia Faventia Julia Augusta Pia Barcino. Writers have mentioned it in their annals of small towns in the area, but whatever the truth is or was, it continued to grow in wealth and importance. It wasn't involved in the imperial matters or burdens like many growing metropolises, but did make their own coins, as can be attested by the few that have survived from the Galba period. Important Roman ruins were uncovered under the Placa del Rei, also by the entrance to the city museum and the typical Roman grid planning can be seen today in the historical center, Barri Gotic or Gothic quarter. Fragments of Roman walls were built into the cathedral, known as the basilica La Seu that was started in 343 AD. Barcelona was conquered by the Visigoths in the early 5th century, by the Moors in the 8th and reconquered by Charlemagne's son Louis in 801 AD., who then made it the seat of Carolingian Spanish Marches, which had become a buffer zone that was ruled by the Count of Barcelona.  The collection that is housed here includes over 35,200 relics.

  • Picasso Museum Picasso Museum Barcelona, Spain
    The Museu Picasso, or Picasso Museum in English, is located in Barcelona, Spain and contains the most extensive collections of art by the 20th century Spanish artist, Pablo Picasso; and has become one of the most favorite and visited museums in the city. The entire museum is contained in 5 adjoining medieval palaces in the city's La Ribera, an older part of Barcelona. The first inklings of the museum were to come from Pablo's best friend, Jaume Sabartes, whom he given a large number of paintings, prints and drawings during their friendship. Sabartes thought about starting a museum in Malaga, where Picasso was born, but Pablo decided Barcelona would be the best place since he'd been in the city so much. Opening in 1963, the base collection was 574 marvelous works that Sabartes had received from Pablo, the pieces that the city held, and the many gifts from Picasso's friends and patrons. When Sabartes committed suicide in 1968, Picasso gave many of his own pieces, numbering in the realm of 1000, mostly of his earlier works, that his family had been safekeeping for him since he had traveled to France. These items included his school books, paintings from his Blue period and academic pieces. Presently there are over 3500 beautiful works of art from Picasso that make up this magnificent collection. Pablo came to Barcelona in 1894, with his father, an art instructor, came here to work, teaching art at the city school. Featured in this collection include two of his early important works, the First Communion and Science and Charity. The museum highlights the unique relationship that he had with the city, one that helped shape his young life, then his adolescence and stayed with him until his passing. The museum's collections include; Malaga, A Coruna, Barcelona, Malaga: summer of 1896 and 1897, Madrid, Horta de Sant Joan, Barcelona: 1899-1900, Paris:1900-1901, the blue period, the rose period, Barcelona: 1917, 1917-1957, Las Meninas, Picasso engraver and Picasso ceramist.

    The Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya, or in English, the National Art Museum of Catalonia, is a museum of visual art located in Barcelona, Spain, held in the National Palace, that was constructed for the World's Fair of 1929. The palace sits on top of Montijuic hill, that was refurbished for the 1992 Summer Olympics, with the museum being started in 1990, just after the Catalonian Museum law combined the collections of the Catalonian Art Museum and the Modern Art Museum, then made it the national museum. The new museum has united the Gothic, Baroque, Renaissance and Romanesque art collections of the modern art museum with the 19th and 20th century artworks of the art museum; plus added the prints and drawings from the Gabinet de Bibuixos i Gravats, the coins and medals from the Gabinet Numismatic de Catalunya and the art history library holdings. The department of photography was started in 1996, just after the museum opened in 1995 featuring the Romanesque art gallery; with the Gothic art gallery opening in 1997 and the remainder opening in 2000. The official opening with the complete works in place and the palace entirely restored, was in 2004. The first Catalonian Art Museum opened in 1934 in the palace, but had to be shut down in the Spanish Civil War and reopened in 1940 and stayed open until 1942, with the influx of the second World War. The Modern Art Museum opened in 1945. Beginning in 2004, the museum has hosted the works of Thyssen-Bornesmisza that had been shown in the Monastery of Pedralbes, but because of the crowds of visitors was moved to assist the visitors. This collection highlights the period of paintings between the Gothic and rococo.

It is located in the Gothic area of the city, along a quiet street and has a refreshing inner courtyard that allows the visitors a moment or two for reflection and meditation.

The collection of these is the most uniform gallery in the museum, with many of his personal sculptural oeuvre being highlighted in his former study/library. His collector's cabinet is a magnificent exhibit that contains tens of thousands of artworks that make up this vast collection documenting the customs and lifestyles of people from the 19th century and forward. The incredible collections include toys, keys, pharmacy bottles, pipes, fans, clocks, photographs, jewelry and reliquaries, displayed in such a special way that reflects Mares private and personal world.

His initial collection included; medieval and Baroque sculpture, incunabula, clocks, reliquaries and many other beautiful objects of art that had been stored at his study on Mallorca Street.
