So this is not the original...It is a reconstruction. But even so it is very well done. Had a great chat with the ticket taker. He knew everything about the building. Including about the challenges of finding the right marble slabs and the slight differences from the original to the reconstruction. We had a great theosophical discussion about the idea... More

Small and peaceful minimalist place to admire the basic architecture of Mies van der Rohe, simple form with extravagant materials and the original Barcelona chairs. Do not miss the gift shop with unique architecture books & items.

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

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.

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.

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.
