Picasso Museum, Barcelona
Favorite thing: Visit the old town. The GOTHIC QUARTER contains the famous Barcelona Cathedral & La Ribera (14th century mansions, one of which is the famous Museu Picasso). The BARRI GOTIC is the oldest part of this city & Romans lived here during Augustus (27 BC - AD 14) reign.

Fondest memory: visiting Nou Camp, sorry I am a futbol fan
Appreciate the modernistas! All of them, especially Gaudi. Visit the Picasso museum, so you can see that he COULD paint in any style, but chose to invent a new one(co-founded cubism with Braque) Stroll the Ramblas from end to end, both by day and by night.
Do not fail to visit the Boquería market for a sensory overload on food! Eat octopus salad!
Fondest memory: Getting drenched in a downpour on the Ramblas at night...crying my eyes out in the museum part of Sagrada Familia as I saw what the place is really about...being there with Sarah in '89 and NOT staying at the pension next door to the 'New York Sex Club'
The guard with the sidearm at McDonald's saying that Americans are 'too trusting' and leave their purses in reach of thieves(OK, so I wanted a cup of 'regular' coffee!)See my Barcelona travelogue for more pix!
The Picasso museum and Barri Gotico.
The Erotic museum at the Ramblas, fun.
Museum of Contmporary art, nice building.
Stroll along at the Passeg d' Garcia, take the tourist bus and see all those fantastic Gaudi-buildings, they seem like something out of a fairy-tell.
Fondest memory: Ramblas although it's full of touristic shops where you can't find anything beautiful to buy as for example at other shops. Generally the atmosphere is very nice with a lot of bars and restaurants where you can sit down and relax and just watch the people.
Favorite thing: Definitely having Sangria along Las Ramblas and watch the day and the people go by was fantastic. I highly recommend the Picasso Museum as well, which house some the most spectacular pieces- namely my favorite, 'Guernica'.
You must live in Barcelona for some months. Barcelona is an arquitechtonical wonder, but its daylife is better! Don't forget the old harbor and the Marina, Tibidabo Panoramical Tower, Sagrada Familia Church, Picasso and Miro Museums, The 'Rambla' famous boulevard and the Passeig de Gracia Avenue, the shops, the Gothic District (Medieval). At night, get out at Aribau and Balmes streets (many discos and bars), at 'Port Olimpic' mini-discos, at Teatre Nacional de Catalunya (National Catalonian Theatre), at Teatre Grec (Greek Theatre), at hundred of cinemas, shows, nightlife places, etc... the night not stop until the next morning!
Fondest memory: It's my city. I travel very much, and I love more and more my city at time that I see more 'world'. But It's a subjective impression.
Picasso museum, La Sagrada Familia, Parque Guell, Las Ramblas, Bauhaus exhibit, TinTin exhibit, hay que comer pan con tomate y ir a una champagneria.
Fondest memory: Many....learned about Gaudi, Miro, cultura y Castellano.
