Most museums that are devoted to Ethnology, display non-European artefacts. This museum used to do the same but all these have now moved to Museum of World Cultures in the centre of Barcelona. What is left are items relating to Catalonian life such as fishing, festivals, etc. Only one floor was open when I visited so there was little to... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
