Barcelona Points of Interest: Ethnological Museum

Alongside the sea and the sun that attract tourists to stay in one of the city’s hotels or boutique apartments, it’s the culture that makes the difference. In this particular area, events, festivals, and museums are at least as important as the well-known Barcelona points of interest.

Apart from the renowned places such as the Picasso Museum and the FC Barcelona Museum, the city also features a number of exhibition centres that do not usually appear in the first row of Barcelona points of interest and yet deserve a visit.
