Special places in Barcelona – The last one

Today the last special place in Barcelona.

6th: The Museu Frederic Marès is one of the most important sculpture museums in Spain.
This is an image of the garden in the old Royal Palace of Counts of Barcelona, at present Frederic Marès Museum. Going along the narrow streets of Barri Gotic (Gothic Quarter), Comtes de Barcelona street in particular, you find the stairs down this patio adorned with a beautiful fountain in the middle of exuberant orange trees. At the opposite end you find the entrance to the museum. Of course it is a recommended place to stretch your legs in the shade after a long walk in the old part of the city. Frederic Marès Museum holds the most important collection of Hispanic sculpture from XII to XIX in Spain. There’s a fine collection of Romanesque and Gothic religious art. Last but not less, you shouldn’t miss the fantastic exhibition of antique children’s toys.
