The Exterior William Do

A small building from an exhibition with nothing in side worth the money. Admire outside and move on.

We are fans of Mies van der Rohe and were excited to be able to visit the Barcelona house. What a disappointment. There is nothing in the house except two Barcelona chairs. The entry charge is exorbitant for what you see. Tip: take photos of the exterior (building and pool) and visit the art museum up the hill.

Adult ticket costs around 6 euros and students get a discount, and if you're interested in architecture, you must see it. Be sure to check out the small museum shop before going out. the only negative thing I'd say would be that there were many people in there just to take photos for instagram and I personally found that a...

Built as the German National Pavilion for the 1929 International Exhibition, this marvelous, minimalistic and exquisite architectural complex soon became inspiration for generations of architects. The Pavilion was disassembled after the exhibition and later, in the eighties, carefully reconstructed, using the same materials which were used by Mies - glass, steel and stones (Roman travertine, green Greek and Alpine marble...

This is a lovely place to enjoy beautiful architecture. It is a very relaxing place. The reflective pool, the lovely garden, and the building itself invite you to enjoy beauty.

This is a truly beautiful and tranquil spot in Barcelona and an iconic building. The craftsmanship and beauty of the design and stone is stunning and it is definitely worth a visit. The only slight disappointment was that we specifically visited on a Saturday morning in order to get a guided tour but the externally contracted tour guide didn't turn... More

My husband is an architect and had to see this building. Once we got there I was in awe along side him. Very minimal, yet extremely exquisite! Took many photos and none does it justice. Take a look people. Very nice!

This was a great visit. I didn't know anything about this building, but my mom really wanted to see it. It's such a beautiful Pabellon, simple and peaceful. If you want to get away from the city, it's a nice place to sit and read and watch the pools and reflect. Definitely worth the visit for the architecture.

Lost for words... The Barcelona pavilion is an absolute bodily experience. Being one with the room, the space, light and materials. Fantastic! To get the best shot at seeing it alone - or with a limited amount of people, be sure to be there when they open (or even before) and you might get up to half an hour ALONE... 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.
