From up here on Montjuic there views of the city are amazing. Although the building looks old, it was only built in 1929. Go early to avoid the crowds but sunset up here is spectacular. As usual in Barcelona, watch out for pickpockets.

This museum is out of the standard for romanic art. The collections of romanic paintings coming from Pyrennes romanic churches are great.if you love art, you cannot miss it. The view over Barcelona from the entrance or/and the terrace is great. Shouln'd be missed

The mediaeval collections are particularly impressive with murals from early churches being carefully reconstructed within...More

Beautiful museum set on the Montjuic hill and parc. Take metro to Espanya stop then walk up (very easy as there are outside escalators (so civilized!). There are many different wings representing Catalan art throughout the ages. SOOOO interesting!

This museum is huge and they offer 2 days to do it. The area is close to other sights in Montjuic and can easily be gotten to from the Metro. It is part of the Articket, which I recommend.

One of the greatest, the National Museum of Art of Catalane and displays collections of all art phases; the building outside has a very nice architecture and a famous view over the city; It's a spacious art museum from medieval art to modern times
