very interesting building design for architecture fans

The simple and elegant design of the building is interesting to see and doesn't look one century old at all. The paid visit only lasts 5 minutes, though.

One can appreciate the elegance and simplicity of the design and the calm atmosphere it creates, but the place is tiny and there is so little to see. I know those with a particular interest in the history of modern architecture and design will find it an iconic structure, but for the average layman there is nothing here that you... More

I have seen and admired this building in books for many years and it was a real experience to visit and it did not disappoint. This must have been such a treat for the visitors to the Expo when it was built. You can understand why it is still here. I was a huge admirer of this building before my... More

Wow, you can't imagine what a shock this building must have been in 1929, but it is still beautiful, and I'd say, still so ageless and modern looking. It's a bit away from the touristic sites at the old city center, it was really worth a visit.

Unfriendly does not quite cut it. The place might be nice, but the badly dressed and intimidating staff would better fit as highwaymen than people who try to promote an attraction.

The Pabellon Mies van der Rohe is a remarkable place. Fascinating architecture in a lovely space. Worth visiting as a part of your trip to MNAC, Montjuic, Placa Espanyol, Fundacio de Joan Miro, etc. Recommended!

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 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

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.
