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

On the Promenade leading up to the Presidential Palace in Barcelona (now the national gallery) is the famous Mies van der Rohe 'pavilion' It is not so much a pavilion, but a testament to architecture before it's time. And architecture from a housing point of view is what really "brings it home". The span of space and dimension are simplistic... More

I came to this site at the insistence of a friend. I'm not exactly sure what it was that I expected to see, but I was overwhelmed by the experience. It's a very nice building.

I like design and architecture but i dont think its worth paying 5 euro for a 2 min visit. I suggest to take a look from the outside because inside you dont see that much more. You are not allowed to sit in the barcelona chair.
