The museum is located within five large palaces in the Born district. These palaces were built in the 13th to 15th centuries, and were renovated as early as the 18th century. They were created in the Catalan Gothic style and include courtyards which lead to the individual areas within the museum.
Picasso himself and his friend and secretary Jaume Sabartés participated in designing the museum by vocalizing their own thoughts and wishes. For instance, the artist’s younger works were to be shown here (and they are, in their entirety!) alongside all the works leading up to the “Blue Period”. The important series of works titled “Las Meninas” from 1957 can be found here, too.

Christianization started very early in Barcelona. The martyrdom of Saint Eulàlia during the persecution of Christians under the Roman Emperor Diocletian (Emperor from 284 to 305) point to this.
The oldest findings of an early Christian church date back to the 4th century. It was a three-aisled building. And although there are no scientifically proven documents from this period, it is believed that back then it already was a cathedral and therefore had a bishop's seat. In one of the chapels of this early church, the relics of Saint Eulàlia were kept. With the conquest of the Iberian Peninsula by the Moors in 711, they were hidden in a different church, presumably in Santa Maria del Mar or Santa María de las Arene. In 877 the bones were rediscovered.
In 985 the simple cathedral survived the destruction of Barcelona by the Moorish ruler Almansor. The church remained standing until 1046, when the Count of Barcelona, Ramon Berenguer, began the construction of a Romanesque cathedral.
The gardens offer an oasis of peace, tranquillity and beauty that I can't put into words. Plants are truly little miracle workers, and here you will see them in all their glory. You will see plants creating flowers with stunningly vivid colours so pure I felt mesmerized. If you take the time to really look at each flower and not just glance at them, you will see the depth of pure natural colour crimsons, oranges, yellows along with other plants that create subtle colours like soft muted purples.
Colours are not the only thing you will marvel at. The air in the different zones of the Botanic gardens was filled with natural perfumes, sweet, soft, lemon, lavender and honey, scents that gave the colours an added dimension of reality.

The central part of the Botanic Gardens has a "bee house". At first, I could only hear a gentle buzz but later I saw them collecting the nectar from the pink blossoms in the trees.
