Standing atop the hill overlooking the whole of Barcelona this landmark building hosts the National art collection in all its glory. Quite magnificent in beauty and only matched by its content

The building itself amazes! And the collection plus the views from the building to the city are superb. It is a bit of a climb to get there though. Worth it!

Went here on a Saturday afternoon as admission is free every Saturday from 3pm, and on the first Sunday of every month. Fantastic views over the city and plenty of chairs and seating both inside and out to relax.

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

2 to 4 hours is needed to see the National Museum of Catalonya, it is packed full of interest. I found the Picasso museum disappointing - mainly early & poor quality works. If you have only one day in Barcelona, don't... More
