One of the pilgrimage spot for all the architects. Such a timeless architecture, for a design that more then 80 years, it still driven a strong comtemporary influence to today's architecture!

Admittedly, I was with architects who explained how this structure is taught in virtually every architecture as a historic forerunner of modern architecture and so went with a bias. But, I actually understood in looking at the building. Not a huge building and it does not take a lot of time. For me, however, it is one of the sites... More

I enjoyed my visit here very much. This is an amazing piece of architecture, and I spent a lot of time doing photography of the detail. But, if you aren't an architecture geek, I can imagine that this might seem rather slight. It is a small building and, unless you are particularly interested in this sort of thing, might only...

The Barcelona Pavilion was the first stop of the day for my husband and me, and we enjoyed it very much. It's a stunning recreation of the original pavilion. From there, we planned to visit the Fondacio Joan Miro, eat lunch, then spend the afternoon at the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya. Combining a visit to these attractions makes sense... More

The Barcelona Pavilion by Miesian van der Rohe caused a sensation at the 1929 world's fair, and the re-creation at Montjuic is still sensational. None of the slides you saw in architecture class really did it justice, and experiencing it this way helps you understand how it changed everything. It is just an amazing work of art that ushered in... More

I'm really glad I got to see this magnificent work of art up close.... but it sort of hurt when I handed over €4,60. Way too expensive>

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful 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.
