Barcelona is chock-full of museums and many of them open their doors for free on the first Sunday of every month. Check out the Catalan National Museum of Art, Catalan History Museum, Museum of Music, and the Picasso Museum – all free of charge. Decent 3-star hotels can be had for around $50/night.
