THE MUSEU NACIONAL D'ART AND THE PALAU NACIONAL
Discover famous tourist attractions in Barcelona
The narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter, the Raval and the Born are among the top must see attractions in Barcelona. Always full of life, these unique locations don’t leave anything to be desired: shops, museums, historic buildings and palaces etc., you can find everything here. Much of the area is pedestrianised. Naturally there are many restaurants, some offering the finest international cuisine and others providing more humble but equally tasty traditional dishes. All this is just at a short stroll from the famous Ramblas of Barcelona.
The Museu Nacional d'Art and the Palau Nacional
The National Art Museum of Catalonia (MNAC in Catalan) was built for the International Expo 1929. However, like many other buildings in Barcelona, thanks to its location in the neo-baroque National Palace of Montjuïc and the continuous incorporation of new art galleries until 2004 the MNAC has become one of the increasingly popular museums in Catalonia.
