It’s known as the “Fountain of Three Graces“, which refers to the statue of the three women. The Three Graces, or Three Charities, of Greek mythology were Aglaia, Euphrosyne, and Thalia. They were the goddesses of joy, pleasure, grace, beauty, festivity, adornment, dance, and song. Daughters of Zeus and the sea-nymph Eurynome, they were also the attendants, or handmaidens, of Aphrodite and Hera and
    7. 7. Immediately outside the doors to the Casa Amatller, near Casa Batllo, a tile in the ground indicates that this very spot is in fact km. 0 on the European Route of Modernism.
    8. 8. Gaudí's work is admired by architects around the World as being one of the most unique and distinctive architectural styles. His work has greatly influenced the face of Barcelona Architecture and you will see Gaudí's work all over the city. Antoni Gaudí was born in Reus in 1852 and received his Architectural degree in 1878. From the very beginning his designs were different from those of his contemporaries. Gaudí's work was greatly influenced by forms of nature and this is reflected by the use of curved construction stones, twisted iron sculptures, and organic-like forms which are traits of Gaudí's Barcelona architecture.
    9. 9. Casa Batlló one of the most interesting and unusual houses in Barcelona was redesigned in 1904 by Gaudí
    10. 10. Gaudí designed a paving stone for the Batlló house (1904-1906), which was finally installed in the Milà house (1906-1910). In the 1970's the Gaudí design was adapted for use on the Passeig de Gràcia avenue. In homage to the architect, Passeig de Gràcia was paved with tiles produced with the original molds by the same company that manufactured in the early twentieth century.
    11. 11. It’s one of the Gaudí-designed tiles that line Passeig de Gràcia (the poshest street in Barcelona), in the rain, and really shows how beautiful Barcelona is in any kind of weather. The rain brings out the colors in the tiles, are pale grey-green in the sunlight.

    15. 15. La Rambla is an endless box of surprises. A box that opens and allows us to glimpse jewels, including this allegory to Orientalism, the Casa Bruno Cuadros, which used to be an umbrella shop of Barcelona in its time. Its style, similar to modernisme with its use of colour and the delicacy of its decorations, have made the Casa Bruno Cuadros a worthy addition to the photograph albums of many of Barcelona’s visitors.
    16. 16. Joan Miró was born in Barcelona in 1893 and studied at the Barcelona School of Fine Arts and the Academia Galí. His early works were reminiscent of Catalan folk art, yet one could detect the flavor of cubism in his paintings. 'Dona i Ocell' Sculpture, the starkly modern statue stands about 22 meters (70 feet) tall and sits on a simple island in the middle of a small pool in the Parc Joan Miró
    17. 17. Covering four city blocks, this expansive park consists of two levels. The lower level is landscaped with pine, palm, and fragrant eucalyptus trees and colorful flowers, especially during the spring and summer months. The upper level is paved and contains the park's crowning glory, one of Joan Miró's last sculptures, entitled Dona i Ocell
    18. 18. The area where Parc Joan Miró now sits was, until 1979, the location of a municipal slaughterhouse. Because of that, it was originally named Parc de l'Escorxador (Slaughterhouse park). 'Dona i Ocell‘ Joan Miro, 1982

The Barcelona wax museum contains a hundreds of human-like wax figures representing historical and entertainment personalities. Most of the characters only exist in our minds because we only see them in the movies or on the television. The Museu de Cera brings the characters to life – and then makes time stand still
    24. 24. This fountain was designed in 1872 by the French sculptor Charles A. Lebourg, as commissioned by the English millionaire philanthropist Sir Richard Wallace, who wanted a fountain which would symbolise the universal fraternity of men. Wallace commissioned hundreds of copies of this fountain which he would present to the main cities. Twelve of these were donated to Barcelona for the 1888 World Fair, of which only two original fountains remain in visible areas, one on La Rambla, in front of the Wax Museum, and the other at the intersection of Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes with Passeig de Gràcia.
    25. 25. Font de Canaletes is an ornate fountain, crowned by a lamp post, in Rambla de Canaletes, the upper part of La Rambla, near Plaça de Catalunya. A late 19th century design, it replaced a fountain dating back to the 16th century, next to the Estudis Generals, a no longer existing university introduced in 1714 by Philip V of Spain after the banning and closure of the University of Barcelona. Nowadays it is the city's most popular meeting point, and a fixture of football fans and hooligans after Barça football matches since the 1930s
    26. 26. Tradition has that the one who drinks from the Font de Canaletes will come back to Barcelona, as the inscription on the floor suggests. The fountain is named after the northern wall of the city (dating from the 14th century), called Canaletes because of the water pipes that went through it supplying Barcelona's old city.
