Housed in the majestic National Palace of Montjuïc –built in 1929 for the Barcelona World Exposition– the National Art Museum of Catalonia (MNAC) overlooks the city, offering a breathtaking panoramic view. The Museum’s four permanent collections feature Medieval, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque, and Modern art. MNAC’s holdings range from paintings by great artists like Titian and Velázquez to the world’s best Romanesque murals, and pieces by outstanding figures of the Catalan “Modernisme” movement like Gaudí and Ramón Casas – whose centenary is being celebrated in 2016. With its many temporary exhibitions and its activities for young and old, bringing the art world closer to people, the National Art Museum of Catalonia has become an important centre of artistic dialogue and discussion in the city. Indeed, the classic elegance of its 50,000 sq.m., its surroundings in Montjuïc Park, and its unique access via the escalator running up the hill from Avinguda Reina Maria Cristina past the monumental luminous fountains, make a visit here a lot more than just a cultural experience.
