This is not a childrens' attraction and there is not much to do here (we took about a thousand photos of the building from different angles), but 5 EUR to contribute to the preservation of a building 70 yeares ahead of its time with Barcelona chairs appropriately displayed seems a reasonable fee to me. We were lucky enough that not... More

Beautiful reconstruction and presentation fit for a listed World Heritage monument. A must-see for all architects: context and size turn out to be much different from what you imagine looking at its pictures.

It's a site that many tourists either don't know is there are walk past without paying the fee to go inside. If you're a fan of modernism, this is a must see. It's perfect in it's simplicity and elegance.

Well, you have to be into architectural history to appreciate this pavillon. My wife thought it looked like a large restroom!! However, it's a landmark piece of modern architecture when everything else was super-ornate and flowery (like the museum MACA nearby). If you're a fan, it's a must.

I am a self-obssessed van der Rohe fan, and didn't want to pass up the chance to see one of his seminal works whilst on a recent trip to Barcelona. Located near the MNAC (another great visit), the building is in exquisite condition. The mix of beautiful weather and beautiful architecture is a must for anybody, regardless whether you enjoy...

I just adore this building - if you have had enough of Gaudi excess this will renew your senses! And it's not usually that crowded - so just sit there and drink in the peace and beauty of this place!!!

A "must" for any lover of architecture or beautiful design. No one should hesitate to spend the 5 Euro to experience the perfect layout from the inside. These "poor-value-complainers" should be happy that the city of Barcelona rebuilt it and cares for it. That comes not for free. Of course I bought the book although I took photos myself. Highly...

I've wanted to see a Mies building for years. It was worth the wait! This would be unbelievably cool if it had been build last year. Work started in 1928! Go there ... feel humble

It is incredible to think that Casa Batilo and the Barcelona Pavilion were designed at about the same time. The latter is just as thrilling today as it must have been in 1929.
