We are not here to give you a history lesson, but rather to hit on the highlights of making a trip to Barcelona with all of its historical value. However it will take more than one trip to see everything that this has to offer. With all of the museums, beaches, churches, historical sites and just beautiful skylines you will never be bored. So be ready to travel for a return visit.
The first place you should head to is the Picasso Museum. The different fazes of Picasso are all shared between five different medieval palaces. The cities in this tour include Malaga, Paris, Moscow and Barcelona all of which were called home by Picasso at some point. Due to its low cost and long visiting hours it makes a great bargain as very easily accessible through public transportation since it is located in Cuitat Vella Parc. The Ciutat Vella (the beautiful city) at one point made up the entire city of Barcelona, as it was divided up into four areas. Due to the easy to follow landmarks it is easy to find these four areas. Using the Catalunya Square you will be able to find the Christopher Columbus Monument which you will also be able to see the port from. If you head north towards the Olympic Park you will be able to see the Cuitadella Park. You will now be able to see the Arch De Triumph and much of the living history of the city of Barcelona.
