This pavilion was originally built in 1929 in 8 months, then taken down, however it was determined that its architectural importance required it be rebuilt on the very same footprint in 1983, although this time it took 3 years to build. Having been to other World's Fairs, I was initially letdown with the buildings simplicity, however sitting and contemplating changed... More

Not your usual popular tourist spot hence no crowd and plenty of space to enjoy this beauty by the famous Mies Van Der Rohe! What a piece and a great experience for us to have witness his architecture.

I will start this review with this... DO NOT PAY THE FEE if you are not 100% interested in architecture or design history. I am a design student and I paid the 5euro fee to see this place and I thoroughly enjoyed it. But I could tell that there were people there that were not enjoying it so please be... More

The architecture itself is with interesting design and high historical value. As a Bauhaus fan, it is definitely worth a visit, but I would say it might be not interesting for most of the people. There is no actual exhibition or curation but only the building itself with a small shop.

A must see for architecture students and enthusiasts. Very interesting pavilion reconstruction from the brink of modern architecture. Id seen so many pictures of it I wasn't sure if it was worth visiting but the light shade and materials are far more impressive in reality so highly recommend.

A waste of time and money. It's two pools that are about ten inches deep and a shiny building made out or marble slabs. The gift shop is larger than the museum and the tin cans outside are probably cooler.

We like architecture designs and buildings, but honestly this does NOT worth to pay 5 euro when there's nothing to see. We have had so much fun in Barcelona, but this is the only disappointment fr. All our visit.

This is worth a visit for anyone with an interest in architecture. Not sure it was entirely worth the entrance fee though.

After two days of Gaudi, it was very refreshing to visit the pavillion of Mies van der Rohe. A very quiet, Zen-like place. Beautiful use of materials and of the space available. It's rather small, but very pleasant to stay for awhile.

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.
