If you prefer something a little more relaxed, why not catch a quality live show in blues, swing, jazz or funk in a host of venues around the Ciutat Vella area during the Festival del Música Creativa y Jazz Ciutat Vella which runs until June 20th. The festival is aimed at reinvigorating these particular genres within music sector through its own fresh and forward thinking agenda. Highlights include Irish blues band The Deans on the 4th June, Olga Roman and the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts for a jazz fusion on the 11th and Flamenco spectacle Marujita on the 15th. Pop into any record store to pick up a flyer, or check online at BarcelonaRocks.

Classical music lovers can visit the gorgeous Gran Teatre del Liceu to hear performances of Beethoven's only opera, Fidelio, or Salome by Richard Strauss, or recitals by Thomas Quastoff or Edith Grubera. At L'Auditori there will be performances of Beethoven's Novena Symphony, Carmen Burana by Carl Orff, and New Babylon by Shostakovich, as well Albéniz' Iberian Suite by pianist Lluís Avendaño.

Also for lovers of classical music, there is a rare treat on Fridays 12th & 19th, at Esglesia Sant Pere de les Puel.les, when Ioana Petcu-Colan performs the solo violin music of Bach and Telemann. Entrance to these intimate concerts is free, and performances will begin at 9pm. The church is located in Plaça de Sant Pere, just a few blocks from the Arc de Triomf monument, which is also the nearest metro.

From June 11 the Picasso Museum is showing an exhibition of work by Kees Van Dongen. This is the first retrospective of the Dutch artist's work in Spain and serves to illustrate and highlight the importance of the painter. Produced in conjunction with the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Montreal, the Nouveau Musée National of Monaco and curated by Jean-Michel Bouhours, the exhibition brings together close to a hundred pieces by Van Dongen. It also includes a small number of paintings by Picasso, which bear testimony to the relationship that existed between the two artists.

Throughout the month at CaixaForum there is an exhibition of work by Andrea Palladio, a contemporary of the Renaissance masters Raphael and Michelangelo, who treated architecture like a profession of utmost importance. He democratised architecture by championing the supremacy of domestic structures, proving that any kind of building could be beautiful without the use of expensive materials. The exhibition at the CaixaForum traces Palladio's career through 200 pieces, from his adolescence as a stone-cutter in Padua to his time as the intellectual and architectural favourite of the Venetian state, aristocrats and religious authorities. The show also expresses the architect's commitment to humanism, which drove his determination to forge a new architectural language for his time. Also explored is the influence he had on subsequent generations of architects like Arata Isozaki, David Chipperfield, Richard McCormac, Toh Shimazaki, Jiménez Torrecillas, and others. The exhibition was organised in conjunction with the Royal Academy of Arts of London and the Centro Internazionale di Studi di Architettura Andrea Palladio of Vicenza and involved the participation of the Royal Institute of British Architects of London.

At the Galería Fidel Balaguer there is an exhibition of work by Scottish artist Jack Davidson, who lives and works in Barcelona. Using various media, Davidson works in abstraction, pulling in bright colours or subtle textures as he desires. The titles of Davidson's pieces are taken from pop music, leaving the viewer to determine their own interpretation of the piece. The exhibition runs throughout the month.

At the Fundació Foto Colectania seven contemporary artists have come together to present a photography exhibition, Rastros which means 'Traces'. The photographs of these artists reflect on the traces that our histories, our memories, our acts and speech all leave on our daily lives and the world around us. The exhibition will run until the end of July.

Continuing at Fundació Arqueològica Clos, Barcelona's Egyptian Museum, until the end of June is Sick Skeletons. With over 130 skeletons and human remains, this exhibition shows the wide range of illnesses and ailments suffered by our ancestors, and brings together artefacts from over 30 institutions from around the world which span a timeline from prehistory to relatively modern times. Congenital and degenerative disorders, infections, tumours, and traumas and injuries caused by violence, among other things, are all explored here.

The Giggling Guiri remains in the perfectly intimate Cafe Teatre Llantiol with a visit to Barcelona by last year’s King of the Edinburgh Fringe festival, one which contained a record 800+ comedy shows, the wonderful Irish comicDavid O'Doherty. He performs on the 6th, doors open at 9.30pm, and as usual you can be certain that tickets for this are going to sell out well before the event, so book in advance to avoid disappointment. Visit www.comedyinspain.com for prices and curtain times.

The football season has come to an end, with FC Barcelona making history by becoming the first Spanish club to win the treble of the league, Copa del Rey, and European Cup, so there's no better time to visit the museum at Camp Nou. They will be joined next season in the Champions League by rivals Real Madrid, as well as Sevilla, and Atletico Madrid. Meanwhile, RCD Espanyol finished their season with a convincing 3-0 win which saw them move to 10th in the table, an achievement all the more remarkable when you consider that a few months ago they were propping up the league and in danger of being relegated. Next season the budgies will be playing in their new stadium, but alas will not have Raul Tamudo in the team as he is heading off to Greece. Tamudo leaves having scored his first hat trick for the club, and having become the highest scoring Catalan in the history of La Liga. Adieu, Raul, and good luck: you'll be much missed.
