Barcelona

Looking for recommendations on bladesmithing related things to do in or around Barcelona, Spain.   I am especially keen on getting to see Falcata firsthand.

Toledo seems to be the town to visit if you're interested in blades! Apart from numerous smiths and sword stores there is the Museo de Ejercito (Military museum), and the Iglesia San Roman, which has a visigoth exhibit. 

 

In Barcelona, there's the history museum, which I assume is where the falcata is, but not much else! If you like modern art, Barcelona is the place to be, but there's not much for blades!

 

Edit: I did a bit of research, if you want to see Falcatas, you'll have to drive all over Spain! In Barcelona there's the Museu de Lleida that has one, so you can check that out. There's two in and around Valencia, one in Cordoba, one in Albacete, and one in Cerralbo, near Toledo. So I'd still make a trip to Toledo if you could!
