Barcelona in 3 days
Getting to the capital of Catalonia, the traveler from the first minute is impressed by its charm. Barcelona in 3 days is able to present an infinite number of meetings with beautiful monuments, amazing hours in its famous museums and interesting acquaintances with people who are not in vain considered one of the most hospitable in the world.
Montjuic and its views
An excellent opportunity to arrange a photo session and become the proud owner of panoramic shots of Barcelona opens up for a visitor to the city on the Montjuïc hill. Many of the city's attractions are located here, to which the folk tourist trail does not overgrow. The oldest architectural landmark of Montjuïc is the fortress of the same name, erected on a hill above Barcelona in 1640 on the site of an older watchtower.
For the opening of the 1929 World Exhibition, a fountain named Magic was inaugurated on the hill. Today, 3620 of its jets are illuminated in different colors, and graceful musical compositions accompany the fountain's nightly performances in front of an enthusiastic audience..
Masterpieces under the dome
At the foot of the hill, in the building of the National Palace, there is a rich museum exposition. Here, in 1990, the National Museum of Art of Catalonia was founded, which contains the most complete collection of novels on the planet. The museum has a department of frescoes removed from small crumbling churches in the Pyrenees.
More than 230 thousand unique exhibits, including amazing examples of wooden sculpture and easel painting, cover the thousand-year history of the development of European art. The most famous exhibits of the museum under the blue dome are the portrait of St. Paul by Diego Velazquez, dating from 1619, and the icon of the Annunciation from the beginning of the 12th century..
Quarter of Strife
In the center of Barcelona, in 3 days, you have the opportunity to meet many interesting buildings and unusual houses. Several of these are concentrated in the "Quarter of Disagreement". Four modernist architects brought their projects to life on the streets of the quarter. Travelers can get acquainted in the Quarter of Strife with the House of Leo Morer, a project created by Domenic y Montanera. Its main feature is a graceful corner rotunda and openwork stone balconies. House of Amalier is famous for its stepped pediment and an allegorical portrait of the owner on the facade, and Casa Batlló by Antoni Gaudí stands out among others for the complete absence of straight lines.
