At €30, the Articket BCN is a very good financial value in addition to allowing you to skip the lines. Even if you don’t go to all six museums, it is s still a good value. You can buy in advance online, or at any of the museums once you arrive.
There are also several kiosks throughout the city that sell the pass, just make sure you don’t pay more than €30.
If you plan on visiting Sagrada de Familia, I strongly suggest that purchase your tickets in advance to ensure you can go on the day of your choice.
We spent 8 days in Barcelona last year and had an amazing time! Two of our favorite places were:
Palau de la Música Catalana – located at Carrer Sant Francesc de Paula, 2. The spectacular concert hall designed by Domènech i Montaner was completed in 1908 and recognized as an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. Take a guided tour, or better yet, attend a concert. Or both!
Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau (Hospital of the Holy Cross and Saint Paul), located at Carrer Sant Antoni Maria Claret, 167. It is also a complex designed by Domènech i Montaner. Built between 1901 and 1930, it was a fully functioning hospital until June 2009. After extensive restoration, it is now a museum and cultural center and a designated UNESCO World heritage site. A city within a city, it truly is an architectural gem. The complex was by far our favorite place to visit in Barcelona. I suggest a guided tour (included in the cost of admission) to truly appreciate the architecture and history. You can still stroll around on your own after the tour.
