Extensive collection of medieval, Gothic and modern art in a stunning building on the top of a hill in Montjuïc. Near the Fundació Joan Miró museum, which is also worth a visit. Easy to get to on the Metro, then a walk up the hill.

Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful
fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands
the impressive and towering structure of the Palau
