The ticket includes the entrance fee to the following museums:
* CCCB (Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona) is located in C/ Montalegre 5 in the Raval area and just right next to the MACBA museum, which makes it easy and very convenient to visit both Museums during one day. Just take a break in between and enjoy a drink on a terrace in front of the MACBA museum and watch the skaters who come every day to practise in front of the museum, or take a stroll in the fashionable Raval area. Just around the CCCB is the hip Vintage shop HOLALA! Plaza with clothing, furniture and art books. Located on Plaza de Castilla 2. The CCCB host as well a nice museum shop with books and nice gift ideas.
* MACBA (Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona) , Plaza dels Angels. This museum is also worth a visit for architecture fans. The building got designed by the amercian architect Richard Meier and is based on rationalism and alludes to the masters of Modern Architecture, particularly Le Corbusier. Since september 2006, the old Church of the Convent dels Angels, got converted into the new exhibition space MACBA.
* Picasso Museum , C/ Montcada 15-23. The museum is situated in 5 large old palaces from the 13th – 15th centuries. The palaces are a good example of the Gothic Catalan style and they are built surrounding a courtyard with with an open stairway.

* MNAC (Museo Nacional d’Art de Catalunya). The Palau Nacional on Plaza Espanya, the emblematic building of the 1929 International Exhibition is the home of the MNAC. In front of this fairytale like castle is the Magic Fountain with its beautiful water, light and music shows. Web: www.mnac.cat
* La Pedrera (meaning: the quarry), Passeig de Gracia 100. One of the famous works of Gaudi and after the Sagrada Familia the most visited monument or museum of Barcelona.
