Barcelona card versus advance reservations

Does the Barcelona card let me skip the lines for some museums and the ticketed Gaudi sites?

If I need to book reservations in advance for Gaudi sites, how many days in advance do I need to do it?

Shall I see all of Gaudi in one day? and in what order and how much time between sites should I leave? (I hate not being able to be spontaneous and booking so much in advance before I leave!)

What other sites should I book in advance in Barcelona and vicinity?

1.) Just in a handful of them. Also, note that many of the most popular sites are run by private foundations/companies and are not included in the Barcelona Card. I already explained in other posts, they are always full so they don't really feel the 'need' to work with intermediaries (Barcelona Card is run by the Barcelona Tourism Board)

2.) Yes, as soon as possible, especially the closer you get to July or August. They are really full, trust me, really full... all the time.

3.) Certainly not, there are over 20 attractions/sites related to Gaudí and/or other Modernists architects and you can safely plan 2 (max 3) per day.

4.) Here a 'short' list, by all means it does not include everything:

Park Güell* http://www.parkguell.cat/ -- Casa Museu Gaudí* http://www.casamuseugaudi.org/ -- Gaudí Experience http://www.gaudiexperiencia.com/ -- Sagrada Família* http://www.sagradafamilia.cat/ -- Hospital de Sant Pau http://www.santpaubarcelona.org/ -- Casa Batlló* http://www.casabatllo.es/ -- La Pedrera* (Casa Milà) http://www.lapedrera.com/ -- Palau Güell* http://palauguell.cat/tarifes -- FC Barcelona* http://www.fcbarcelona.com/camp-nou -- Torre Bellesguard* http://www.bellesguardgaudi.com/ -- Born Centre Cultural http://elborncentrecultural.bcn.cat/ca -- Museu Picasso* http://www.museupicasso.bcn.cat/ -- MNAC Museu d'Art Contemporari de Catalunya* http://museunacional.cat -- Poble Espanyol* http://www.poble-espanyol.com -- MACBA* http://www.macba.cat/ -- MUHBA Museu d'Història de Barcelona http://www.museuhistoria.bcn.cat/ -- Museu d'Història de Catalunya http://www.mhcat.cat/ -- Casa Lleó i Morera http://www.casalleomorera.com/ -- Museu Dalí* (Figueres) http://www.salvador-dali.org/ -- Port Aventura (Salou) http://www.portaventura.es

For (*) is almost essential, for others not so much, but altogether desirable.
