Visionary Catalunya at the CCCB museum
Santa Maria del Mar Cathedral
MACBA Museum
The CAIXA Forum
Granja Viader
Ateneu Barcelones – School of written arts.  Interesting library

Follow Calle Hospital (check out the old hospital,now an Art school on the right) until you hitRambla de Raval on the left. This new rambla has been created in the last 10 years or so by controversialy knocking down many of the characteristic blocks of narrow streets that made up the now all but extinct Barrio Chino. This barrio is now home to Barcelonas newest and would seem fastest growing wave of Pakistani immigration

On Calle Sant Pau there is a lovely old church ( i think one of the oldest ) which is worth a visit if it is open. A very good film about the creation of this barrio En Construccion( In Construction) by a local filmaker Jose Luis Guerin is very good.
BARCELONETA, Metro Barceloneta 
Plaza del Poeta Bosca (Poeta Bosca Square): close to the beach, one of the oldest barrios. It have changed lots since the Olympic game in 1992, used to be a forgotten neighbourhood, now it’s becoming more and more popular, go before it changes for ever! 
Plaza Surtidor (Sutidor Square): a square in the hard of the popular barrio Poble Sec,where singer Joan Manuel Serrat was bornLook for more suggestions here as they come in HERE
