National Museum of Catalan Art

My Rating:

The positives:

The MNAC, which towers over the Plaça Espanya, has an amazing architecture and a collection of 1,000 years of Spanish and Catalan art history. You can spend so much time in the museum with the English language audio guide! You’re also rewarded with a great view.

The negatives:

With the exception of the "ascent" (which can also be done with escalators), I can only think of one little thing: If you expect many, well-known artist names here, you might be a little disappointed.


Get on the roof terrace! That costs EUR 2 extra, but you can enjoy a great view of the city. And if you walk over the roof to the other side, you can see the Fundació Joan Miró, the Olympic Stadium and the gardens of Montjuïc!
