Following the advice from others, I was told this attraction was worth doing even if just from the outside without paying the entrance fee. This is incorrect. Unless you have specific knowledge of architecture and this architect, then you will likely be disappointed. We walked...More

One of the most important building in the 20th century. The simplicity with the absolute precision in construction is breathtaking. If you imagine that this was constructed about 1929 you must appreciate timelessness of the building. And it is not so owercrowded as other spots...More

This is a place you must visit if you want to feel the power of space. Pure lines, wall details and mesmerising perspective make a perfect harmony. Even if you are not an architect or an architecture fan, you'll certainly enjoy there.

The Barcelona Pavilion, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, was the German Pavilion for the 1929 International Exposition in Barcelona, Spain. This building was used for the official opening of the German section of the exhibition.

fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands
the impressive and towering structure of the Palau
