It was so nice to see this place. Took so many photos and loved every bit of it. What is good is that it's plain and not crowded like a museum where you get overwhelmed with room after room of the same art. This however was a pleasant and simple experience. A must see if you love architecture. Plus I... More

I really wanted to see this attraction as its in all my architecture books and I couldn't visit Barcelona without seeing it, there is a small fee to see inside and stupidly we paid it, if you walk round the back you could get in for free, nonetheless you need to see this if you appreciate a good building! but...

This building was originally part of the 1929 world exhibition, removed, reconstructed and reopened in 1986. In 2016 there is an interesting special exhibition outside telling the story and commemorating that it is 30 years since the reopening of this architectural masterpiece.

This is an astonishing space. It has a door but no sense of a door. It can be seen through but is solid. It seems to nudge for you too keep moving but it has a few places to sit. It's a powerfully firm space, yet there is water. Go. Dream up your own list of contrasts so well demonstrated... More

My husband studied architecture, and this building has been on his bucket list for a long time. The admission is 5 euros per person, and well worth it. Despite being in a busy city, there is something so peaceful about this place. We enjoyed sitting on one of the benches and watching the breeze on the reflecting pool. There is... More

The "less is more" architect is sensationally represented in his 1929 building for the International Exhibition of Barcelona. It was reconstructed in 1986 on a most perfect site. The domed, sculptured, columned and frescoed palace with its waterfalls (now the Catalonian Museum of National Art) is a sharply contrasting backdrop. What a spectacular place to experience the simple elegance of... More

Architects should make the trip to see the reconstruction of this seminal building. Elegant, groundbreaking and exquisite.

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
