Just the Montjuic mountain itself has enough to see and do to entertain your entire trip, let alone the surrounding Sants and Tibadabo districts. Halfway up, on the side of Placa Espanya, the Palau Nacional is a regal building home to the MNAC, or Contemporary Art Museum, which should be high on any art-lover’s list. It holds the most impressive collection of contemporary Catalan art in the world, which has grown enormously since the centre received world recognition after the 1888 Universal Exhibition. As well as many pieces from the 19th and 20th century, there is also a notable collection of Romanesque church paintings and Gothic Art works.
Before you reach the heights of the Palau Nacional, you will come across the Barcelona Pavilion built by German architect Miles Van de Rohe in 1929. The Pavilion was initially created as celebration for the Barcelona International Exhibition and has since put on many significant events such as award ceremonies, conferences, exhibitions and workshops. The unique nature of its design makes it a fascinating place to visit, regardless of your interest in architecture and its history.
