Day 1 - Barcelona


In the morning see where Pablo Picasso's imagination began at the Museu Picasso. If you're into textiles, which was one of Barcelona's big industries, go across the street to the textile museum and perhaps grab a bite to eat. Walk from the museum to the Passeig del Born, an inviting square that's becoming hipper and hipper. Make your way to the main drag Via Laietana take a right, then when you reach Carrer de Jaume (and the metro stop by the same name), take a left and continue until you reach Carrer d'Avinyo. End your day at the Quatre Gats where Picasso had his first exhibit.

Day 2 - Barcelona


Expose yourself to a little Antoni Tapies and a little modernism. Tapies's work often needs explanation to be understood so take time with the texture of his pieces. The Modernist Casas Batllo, Ametller, and Lleo-Morera are around the corner on the Passeig de Gracia. Several tapas bars with outdoor cafes line this section of the street for lunch. Back around your hotel in the Barri Gotic you'll enjoy the Gothic Santa Maria del Pi and its welcoming square, where on some weekends artists set up their paintings to be sold. The Vinya del Senyor is nearby for the final toast before bed.

Day 4 - Barcelona


Your final day of contemporary art...see the latest exhibits and installations at the MACBA. Lunch on the square at Buenas Migas, then head to the Barceloneta. Walk down the Ramblas to the Colombus Monument and then past the port until you reach the Barceloneta area. Eat ice cream, you'll have burned it off by the end of the day from all the walking. Sit on the beach and relax. Muster up the energy to walk back to your hotel passing by Can Paixano for the curious pink cava toast.
