When I had last been to Barcelona I hadn't had time to go to this museum but it was on my list for this trip. It was great to be up in the Parc de Montjuic with its spectacular views of the city. The museum was an eye opener to breath of Miro's work. The cafe was delightful but next... More

My favourite museum in Barcelona. Beautiful setting, fabulous building, great art. A lovely cafe to take a break in and then go back for more.

The Miro paintings and sculptures were great to see in person - his huge wall-hanging are particularly impressive. The gallery was €11 each and was of a good size to take it all in within 2 hrs, without being overloaded (a fair price). The first works you see on entry are from other artisits, and these were less impressive (in... More

You can see plenty of really fine art there. It is suitable even for children. We had a lot of fun there.

As usual in this type of gallery you look at some of the exhibits and think someone is having a laugh at your expense e.g. a completely blue canvass or three straight lines of black charcoal however there were some lovely pieces, I liked a big fabric woven piece and the sculptures, plus one or two interesting sketches or paintings....

I had a great time here and would not generally consider myself all that arty. Good layout and nice cafe and shop too.

This is something a bit different when you've had enough of the city centre. We took the fenicular railway to the Montjuic park (included in the metro/bus network ticket) and walked just 5 mins to the Fundacio. It was good, but not quite as much fun as we were expecting. I wish photography was allowed as last time we came... More

Beautifully sitting atop the hill,easy to go by metro to Monjuic and then funicular up to the Miro museum. Audioguide and exhibit are well-coordinated -- explains the context of the era, Miro's art and how it became more abstract over time. Save time to walk in the gardens and surrounding park with beautiful views of the city below, also visit... More

They said allow an hour, maybe an hour and a half. Wrong. Three hours later and we have still barely scratched the surface of the magnificent work of this extraordinary man. Think Barcelona? Think Miro. Without realising it you will know some of his work, and this Foundation contains the definitive collection of his work. It's fun, it's moving, it's... More

Staying in Montjuic

Neighborhood Profile
Montjuic
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colorful 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.
