MNAC Montjuic is the Catalonia National Art Gallery. It is housed in the 50.000m² National Palace. The building was constructed for the 1929 Expo and the central dome was modelled on St Peters in The Vatican.
It is most famous for the world renown collection of Romanesque mural painting. It is totally unique and there is nothing else like it on the planet.
Apart from Medieval Romanesque Art, there are six other permenent areas in MNAC Montjuic. They are: Medieval Gothic Art, Renaissance and Baroque Art, Modern Art, Drawings, Photgraphy and Numismatics.
There are always some temporary exhibitions to visit. They have an additional entry charge. This summer (2016) there are 'The Divine Morales' and 'Ramon Casas and the shadow puppets at Els Quatre Gats'.
You can also explore the building itself, including the Oval Room, the Staircase of Honour and the Òleum Restaurant.
The MNAC Montjuic roof top is a great place for spectacular views of the city. In the summer it doubles as a cocktail lounge. Friday and Saturday night's you can get in for free (via a sidedoor) between 8pm and midnight!
