Fascinating to discover that it is actually a 1980s reconstruction of the original 1929 structure. The latter was hastily demolished in 1930, with a year not having elapsed since its debut for the International Fare.

Four varieties of marble and golden onyx are used throughout giving it an exceptional beauty. Combined with copious glass and tranquil water features, it’s an engaging attraction.

Figurative sculptures provide further interest.

I shed a tear when we got to the Barcelona Pavilion. I'd seen pictures all my life but they dont do it justice. Truely inspired. My husband who saw me cry thought I'd gone insane.
There are Barcelona Chairs to sit in and although at 56 I no longer enter or exit one gracefully it was still a thrill to get a picture in one at their birthplace. For all architecture fans, you must make this pilgrimage. For everyone else, suck it up and let your architecture-loving partner have their moment.

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 (in February!) - depending on the time of year, naturally.

This minimalist pavilion designed by Mies van der Rohe for the 1929 World Exhibition is preserved as an example of a modernist building. While a little quirky, it's fairly minimalist and totally over-priced at €5 for a 10 minute visit.

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.

Not mentioned as a very interesting attraction in Barcelona but is certainly worth a visit. Modern architecture that is stil very actual. Small garden, nice interior which breathes quietness.

Mies's modernist buildings are a true pleasure to be in. To those saying it's overpriced, you must be hard pressed for 5€. I spent over an hour in here sitting and looking at all the marble details. A true masterpiece.

We had just finished seeing Poble Espanyol and this was on our list of sights to see on the way back to our AirBnB in Barcelona. I have to agree with most of the reviewers...unless you are an architect, this may not be worth a visit.

Although a stunning design for the 1930’s (and even now) it is not a large place. You enter and wonder...is there more to see? Well there isn’t. In fact, from the outside you can see 80% of the structure. Inside are just empty (but beautiful) marble walls. No explanation of where the marble came from, no explanation of what the designer was attempting to say with the design.

So for the 10 € we paid, we only stayed less than 10 minutes. I suspect had I been an architect and not a civil engineer, I may have just stayed and marveled at the simplicity of the design...but one visit to this place will be enough for me.

I too walked in wondering why i was there but luckily i married a brilliant architect! He explained you cant study architecture without knowing this building and then proceeded to exllain the overhang etc and i got it. Every building on grand design bows down to this and i loved the serenity of it. I also had a tear jerking husband at touching in his words architectural perfection

The staff in the museum-shop is the rudest we have ever met. It was obvious that she had more important things to do than serving her customers. We wanted to buy a € 13 or € 14 souvenir, but she refused to take a € 50 note! We then emptied our pockets and counted 14 in euros and cents. On two first askings, wether the price was 13 or 14 euros, she did not answer. When we asked the third time she went absolutely mad, yelling at us in a language we did not understand. We then left.
