  • Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya Admission Ticket

    1. Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya Admission Ticket

    The Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (MNAC) is located in the Palau Nacional of Montjuïc, which was built for the International Exposition of 1929. On your visit to the museum you’ll have the opportunity to see the works of artists of Catalan Modernism, including Gaudí and Casas. Admire masterpieces by great European Renaissance and Baroque painters, such as Tiziano and Velázquez. See the museum’s collection of photography as well. The collections are displayed on 2 floors and you should plan on spending a couple of hours at the museum to ensure that you have time to see it all. In addition to exploring the collections you’ll have a chance to learn about the history of the building. Afterwards, you can head up to the rooftop, which is the perfect spot for enjoying panoramic views of the city.

    Keep in mind that you need more time exploring everything. Also there are little explanations in English, so for someone who is not an expert in Spanish art or doesn't speak Spanish a guide is needed. Besides that the collected exponents are definitely a must see.
