barcelona_chocolate_museum
The Barcelona Chocolate Museum was founded by the Barcelona Confectionery Guild (El Gremi de Pastisseries de Catalunya) in 2000 in a former convent in the Born area of Barcelona's old city. The museum takes visitors on a journey through the history of chocolate from the discovery of the cocoa bean in the New World to its modern day popularity. At Easter, the museum hosts an annual "mona" contest. Monas are chocolate sculptures, which can be famous buildings, people, or cartoon characters. Chocolate makers display their "monas" in the windows of their shop during Barcelona Easter week and try to outshine each other with sheer creativity and inventiveness.  And what chocolate museum would be complete without a cafeteria that serves hot chocolate and other tempting treats. Admission to the museum is € 5 in 2014, but you can visit the shop and cafe free
