After years of seeing this building on the TV and in books, I finally managed to see it. it is amazingly peaceful place int he middle of a large city, an even though there are no doors, and the roof looks like it is floating, it is somewhere I could live.

So contemporary house built in the 30's : amazing compared to the others which look like big heavy cakes. Less is more : a eternal way to think

So this site is not for everyone...even our rough guide to Barcelona downplayed it as a sort of disappointment. But if you like architecture and want to see one of the most modern structures...this site is for you. This pavilion was constructed temporarily for the international exposition in 1929. Featuring travartine marble, book match marble, and this glorious orange onyx,... More

Maybe simple to an eye of somebody unintrested in art and architecture, this building is a pearl. Its materials and simplicity made it one of the greatest achievements in modern architecture. Totally worth paying couple of euros for visit, and located very near Montujuic and Magic fountains (2 mins on foot from fountain). There's a discount for architecture students.

i have visited the Mies van der Rohe Pavillon already many times when in Barcelona, because it is beautiful and gives an impression of calm, quiet, light, transparence. It is very beautiful in al it's simplicity, and the combination with water definitely is an asset for me. You can also see the very famous Mies van der Rohe chair.

Fantastic architecture. Not many tourist would know about it, or bother to seek it out. Take my word for it, it is very interesting, especially if you are in Barcelona to enjoy architecture - take the tour bus up the hill and check it out. There are also lovely gardens to enjoy, and a fantastic shop.

I am sure most people walk past the pavillion without realising what it is. For 5 euros though you get to enter a reconstructed (admittedly) pavillion by Mies van der Rohr. The original was built in 1929 and housed the classic Barcelona chairs. Yes, you can see alot of it from the outside, but its well worth exploring from the... More

Worthwhile and a quick visit. I've visited Farnsworth in the US which is utterly brilliant; this space is likewise extraordinary.

I always wanted to see the building - and it was as great as expected even though it is a bit smaller as I expected. The lines and the textual the colors and the stones it's something unique. The Barcelona chairs inside are at "their home". My family went to the fountain and waited for me - the do not... More

As a student, the 2.60€ entry is very much worth it, just to be amazed by the work of Mies Van der Rohe from 1929. I mean, the building looks like it could've been built last week, take that in. I do suggest you look at it from the outside before you buy tickets in, as you can see about... 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.
