This is the best place in Barcelona for me, right besides the Montjuic park, this is a real architectural gem. It is beautiful both in daytime and at night, when the magic fountain fill the place with music, color and breeze wet air. This is a scene worth the whole visit to Barcelona.

Paid entry but worth it if you have a morning to spare. If on a flying visit be aware that you can see some exhibits for free. When we were there the modern section was being refurbished and a temporary exhibition of highlights of modern art was free to view. We paid our money and were not disappointed. The church... More

Sat in front of the fountain for a while, it was relaxing watching the people get lost in the atmosphere, finally headed inside the museum, which has incredible art work! A must see for sure. There was a park to the side which is also worth a visit.

we had an All White party here and my husband and i said it reminded us for the movie Hunger Games and being in the Capital! It was out of the world! The museum has one of the most breathtaking views of Barcelona! Make the walk up to it and just take in the city!

Located on a hill, this is one of the most impressive museums in Spain , if not Europe. Even if you are not interested or short of time for viewing the collections, I would still recommend going here for the amazing views of the city. For a small fee, they let you climb up the roof of MNAC and the... More

MNAC is a fabulous museum especially to see Catalonian art. It is located on Montjuic. The building itself is beautiful to see. Once inside the museum is well organized and as you enter each section you are guided through the exhibit in a logical manner. Its most famous exhibits are the romanesque collection in which many frescos have been removed... More

If you are a music enthusiast, this is a place for you to visit. A fascinating experience for me. I am sure i am not the only one who thinks so... but the place is very crowded, it was during the season i guess.

wonderful religious frescoes from 1100 -1500 AD….the general artworks and sculptures are the finest in Spain and some of the best in Europe ….the building itself is a masterpiece.

Religious, contemporary, romance - you want it they have it all on display. They also have on display the biggest organ ever constructed. Located near the Olympic stadium and arch museum so it is a full day of wonder. Stop at the Arenas and get an excellent pitcher of sangria.

One of the funniest experiences of our travels! If you are not an expert on medieval altars the awesome collection of such can be bewildering; we got utterly turned around in the galleries and were reduced to hysterical giggles as we tried to escape the maze. Honest we knew this was important art but... for us the disappointment was that... More
