    At our next stop, we walked to the Museu de Ceramica.
    The building the ceramics are housed in is beautiful, and no wonder why, because it is the 18th century Palace of Pedralbes, residence for the Spanish royal family from 1922 to 1924.

    I couldn't go inside as it was closed by the time we arrived there on a Sunday, a pity, as it displays Spanish ceramic art, and medieval pieces.

    Opening times: 10am to 6pm, Tuesday to Saturday
    10am to 3pm, Sunday and holidays.
    Admission in 2011: 4.20 euros (concessions: 2.40 euros)

    ROYAL PALACE ENTRANCE

    The royal palace was built in 1924 for King Alfonso XIII who was then on the throne. University buildings now stand on either side along the very long street called Diagonal. There are beautiful gardens here and two museums. Nearby one can visit the Pavellons Guell, another Gaudi commission.

    Once you enter the palace you'll see an elegant hall with the main stairs and a wonderful lamp. The groud floor has a throne room and large adjoining rooms which are used today for official receptions. The first and second floors house both the Museum of Ceramics and the one of Decorative Arts.

It has big wonderful and luxuriant gardens with sculptures, fountains and arbours. The Princess Cristina, the second daughter of our King Juan Carlos I, celebrated her marriage in this palace in 1997. There is a sculpture of the Queen Elisabeth II (1833-1868) in the palace entrance, behing the front fountain. Currently the Palace host the Museums of Ceramics and Decorative Arts and it's an excellent place to official receptions.

    Inside the Palau
    2 more images

    Located in Palau Reial (also home to the Ceramics Museum), and included in the combined EUR 3.50 ticket with the Ceramics Museum and the Textiles Museum, the Decorative Arts Museum rates as slightly more interesting that its two partners. The emphasis is on design, architecture and fashion and the collections are organized chronologically. Take a tour of the grounds surrounding the Palau and take in the monumental architecture and design inside the building... worth the trip even if the collection is a bit dull. Non-flash photography is permitted inside.

    Boring Museum in Great Building

    Outside the Museum

    The Musee de Ceramica contains Spanish ceramics from the 11th century to the present. The collection would interest only the most die-hard ceramic fans, as room after room of bowl after bowl can get tedious- FAST. However, I would still recommend a visit to this museum because it is located in the beautiful Palau Reial, just north of the city center (Metro: Palau Reial, L3), a building that also houses the Decorative Arts Museum. There are beautiful landscaped gardens surrounding the museum, and the rooms are artfully decorated and well-lit, showcasing some beautiful architecture and design. Plus, for EUR 3.50 you receive admission to the two museums in the Palau plus the Textile Museum, so you really can't go wrong!

    A Big Shirt Outside the Museum

    The Textile and Clothing Museum is located in the city center, just off Via Laietana (Metro Jaume 1). It is a small museum spread over three floors, and the collection includes a small-ish selection of textiles, tapestries, lace, clothing and accessories with a heavy leaning towards those of Catalan -> Spanish -> European design. You can be in and out of the museum in forty-five minutes, but because the ticket is a combined ticket that also includes The Decorative Arts Museum and the Ceramics Museum (located in Palau Reial) for a ridiculously low EUR 3.50, it's a good deal for budget-concious travelers.

    Royal Park

    Yes, I liked the park. No, I don't think that it's an absolutely-must-see. It's nice, it was planned by Rubio i Tuduri and it hosts Palau Reial, the Royal Palace and Museum of Decorative Arts. And it's a good place for a relaxing walk. That's it.

    Capella de Santa Àgata

    Capella de Santa ��gata

    The only thing really worth mentioning about this church is that it is part of the Palau Reial Major , it houses the Condestable altarpiece by Jaume Huguet, and also that and it houses the stone on which Saint Agatha's breasts were mutilated. I assume it's some sort of catholic relic. In case you're curious, construction on the chapel began in the beginning of the 14th century but I don't know when it was completed.
