Barcelona is a modern and crowded city. Las Ramblas is its famous shopping district, filled with boutiques, cafes and colorful flower stalls. The plan for today is to visit the Pablo Picasso Museum and Casa Mila, also know as La Pedrera, a large five-story house designed by Antoni Gaudi, built between 1906 and 1910.

This building is quite unusual; it is said that Gaudi believed in natural and organic lines-with no trace of anything angular or mechanical. But, by far, the most interesting feature is the rooftop. Large chimneys are camouflaged by strange shapes and our first thought was, “Is this where George Lucas got his inspiration for some of his Star War’s characters?”

Museo Picasso is housed in five medieval castles and contains over 3,500 of Picasso’s works of art. Most people associate Picasso with his later cubism style, but in his early years, his paintings of family members were realistic and truly magnificent.
