Exploring new dimensions and horizons with Miró & Horn

•••
There is one museum in Barcelona that I don´t mind taking friends over and over. I will just never get tired of Miro’s childlike paintings, sculptures, ceramics, murals, tapestries… His happy colors might seem naïve to many yet they manifest a strong Catalan pride.

Barcelona keeps innovating and we love it! We felt like Alice in Wonderland experiencing the new adventure that Casa Batlló, the most emblematic modernist building designed by Gaudi in Barcelona, is offering now to the curious insatiable tourists, locals or fashionistas, like us. It´s called the 3D Tablet, a pioneering and privileged way to discove[...]
