If you are visiting the nearby Art Museum, then I highly recommend taking 15 minutes to visit the Pavillon. It is essentially empty but the building itself is serene and the stone it is made from very beautiful.

A visit to this pavilion made bits of my architecture studies make so much more sense. I wandered in awe while my boyfriend napped. Definitely not recommended for non-architects.

For any one interested in architecture and design, this is the building to see in Barcelona. Less is truly more, come here and soak in the original 1929 design, which is reflected in so many modern buildings. See the classic Barcelona chair and stool. Check the website for the building and discover the history. This is a must see.

This is a restoration of the original Mies van der Rohe exhibition that was installed in the Barcelona World Exposition of 1929, and I'm sure that it created quite a stir back then! It is the essence of modern design, introducing the elements of slab construction and minimalist décor. Today, it is a very small part of the Montjuic collection... More

Mies Van der Rohe, is one of the referents of modern architecture, together with Le Corbusier. This pavilion was built for a world fair and remained as a classic example of modern architecture. He was the father of the phrase 'less is more', and one other of his masterpieces is the 'glass house'.

With an appreciation of when this was designed, anyone interested in architecture should visit this building. You can see most of it without paying to 'go in', but we were happy to pay a modest amount to support its upkeep.

Fan of architecture, so this is a must see. The building is elegant cool and timeless. Easy to get to as this side of Mont Juic has escalators to take you up the mountain.

if Mies´s "less is more" perceived form of modern architecture ever had an outstanding living example, this is it!. Thisk of it as today´s modern style housing but built in 1930.

This was well worth the visit. My dad recommended we visit since he is a fan of architecture and modernism in particular. I'm glad we followed his advice as the Pavillion is an utter marvel. Reconstructed using the original plans, the 1986 edition is as faithful a rendering of the 1928-30 structure as you could hope to see. The setting... More

Staying in Montjuic

Neighborhood Profile
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.
