We will head to Picasso’s museum in the Born district to understand why he is the most important painter of the 20th century (and most stubborn!) and why he always wore horizontal striped t-shirts! Through his paintings we will feel like Picassos ourselves!
On our way we will walk by the Palau de la Música, a stainglassed concert hall that is a Unesco Site and home of the Orfeó Català. We’ll walk in Santa Caterina’s original food market with its Gaudi’s inspired curvy colourful roof and also we will visit a unique store where we will learn some magic tricks!
After visiting the Picasso Museum we will travel in time to medieval times looking at Santa Maria del Mar church, popularly known as the Cathedral of the Sea and inspiration of a novel by Ildefonso Falcones.
Once we leave this marvel of the Gothic arquitecture we will head to…mmmmm that smell…YES! it’s the Chocolate Museum!! Let´s discover the history of these brown yummie beans called cocoa!! And of course, let’s taste it!!
