How do you get a building with glittering tile and glass to sound so good? We saw the Spanish Guitar Trio on a Friday night. Blown away by the entire experience. But once you are in your seat, don't try to get up and use the restroom. The rows are long and narrow. Everyone has to stand to let you... More

Amazing structure, not too expensive. I was intrigued by the history of coins. Terrific architecture and views. A variety of art works, and an inexpensive cafe under the dome. Take a walk around the inside and outside of the roof. Great views.

Beautiful place. Museum is devided according to different art trends, although they run some temporary expositions. Check their site, they have differens days and events when you can enter for free. Even if you are not into art, just go for a walk around on the heel.

Magnificent and impressive building topped by the cascading waterfalls and views to die for. Could this be Heaven on earth? If so I would gladly have my last service at The Sagrada Basilica and interned at the Hills of Museu National.

A beautiful building encompassing a wide range of art exhibits. The modern and contemporary art exhibits were especially fascinating. The building itself is worth looking at. It has a light and airy auditorium where the café is conveniently situated. Remember to look up at the ceilings; they are spectacular. We went on Sunday when the museum closes at three, so... More

My partner and I came here to see the Magic Fountain and were blown away by the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya looming over from above, looking down toward Placa de Catalunya. Such a beautiful building and the collection inside is marvellous.

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.
