The National Palace of Montjuic
The National Palace of Montjuic receives thousands of visitors each year. It is probably the most emblematic building of Montjuic.
It was built for the international Expo in 1929. In the year 1934 it became the home of the National Art Museum of Catalonia (MNAC), in which you can mostly find Romanesque art.
Under the supervision of the Italian architect Gae Aulenti they began restoring the palace in 1987. The works were completed in 2004.
People are visiting the palace during the day but also at night when you can watch an amazing show of lights and colors next to the Magic Fountain.
