My photo diary of my second day in Barcelona is here now. It was one art-culture day which ended with a dinner an evening hangout in the lively Gay area of Barcelona.
Our day started with a lazy morning in our hotel room and a bit late breakfast. We took everything quickly. So we skipped our hotel’s breakfast and got one in the city instead. Then just like we planned, a museum visit and just another city exploring.
Museu Nacional D’Art De Catalunya
We enjoyed our visit and spent almost 5,5 hours in this museum, mesmerized by the collection and of course the masterpieces. The museum’s masterpieces consist of different collections; we love variations. We visited all the sections; the medieval en Romanesque art, gothic art, renaissance and baroque art, modern and contemporary art, drawing, prints and posters section and their numismatics collections. My favorites are the three pieces I photographed including one of the museum’s masterpiece. The Apse from Santa Maria d’Àneu from an end of 11th century – beginning of 12th century. Look closely to the angel’s wings. Eyes! Were Humberto Leon & Carol Lim of Kenzo inspired by the wings of these angels for their Eye prints collection? Can this shearling biker jacket function as wings to make you fly and feel like a hero? I see angels as heroes more than holiness, blame it to Superman. We, of course, took our chance to photographed one another when leaving the museum, the stairs and The Four Columns are our sets with the museum building as the background, Arty.
Hard Rock Cafe Barcelona
After the half day tour of the museum, I need to be back to the present, so we decided to start our city tour with a late lunch at Hard Rock Cafe Barcelona. Love the food actually, even I do not eat burgers or pastas. And I got myself, of course, a little something.
Santa Maria Del Pi
We found the church accidentally when we just walked and walked. No map involved. The church of Santa María del Pi (XIV-XV c.) has the huge multicolored rose window. And as an extra, there was a local market in front of the church. The local market sells natural foods such as honey and ‚ tó (a mild cheese), but I also saw some arts and crafts in some of the tents. I photographed a similar window of Dom Sankt Petrus in Osnabrück, Germany.
Metro Station Pl. Catalunya
We used metro a lot every time we travel in a big city with metro lines. So convenience when you finally figured out how it work. And walk of course, because I think only this way you can see something new, outside the travel books?
Talking about art, I can not wait to find time to visit the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, my city.
