Barcelona. Montjuic. Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya in the Palau Nacional.

Montjuic Museum

The Palau Nacional at Montjuic was built for the International Exhibition, which took place in Barcelona in 1929. 5 years later it became the home of  MNAC – the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya.

The museum “embraces all the arts (sculpture, painting, objets d’art, drawing, engraving, posters, photography and coinage) and has the task of explaining the general history of Catalan art from the Romanesque period to the mid-twentieth century.” (source)

As much as I liked seeing the artworks, I loved walking around and exploring this beautiful building. The most impressive part was the Great Hall with its massive organ (11 eleven meters high and 34 meters width). But the oval shape of the hall and its white, shiny floor made me feel like I’m at an ice-skating rink. 🙂
