The Palau Nacional, constructed for the International Exposition of 1929, is the location of the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya. The Palau Nacional, which just about extends to 50,000 m2, is a building of major proportions, which relates to models of academic classicism of the period within the ambit of the universal exposition. Its façade is crowned by a large dome, inspired by that of St Peter’s of the Vatican; two lesser domes on either side, and four towers inspired by the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostella.
It is located on the hill of Montjuïc, a privileged setting from which you can enjoy magnificent and unique views of Barcelona. The front access to the Palau Nacional is reached by a major stone staircase from the avenue of Reina Maria Cristina, flanked half way up by the major luminous and monumental fountains by Carles Buïgas.
