  • If only get to see one place when visiting Barcelona, this has to be it. Classiest museum you’ll ever go to in Europe if not the world. Unique works with great crowd control. The restaurant was reasonable and superb. Was very relaxing, a vacation from our hectic, jam packed “vacation”.
  • Inspiring and liberating to see his work. As an artistic person it is great to see that one doesn’t have to be perfect to produce great works of art. Miro was really ahead of his time. The gallery is definitely worth the visit. Montjuic is also gorgeous.
