This is one of the most interesting spots in the city, in my opinion. It´s a simple and rather small building that was the German Pavilion during the International Exposition held in Barcelona in 1929, although what we can see nowadays is a painstaking reconstruction of the original pavilion. The main attractive of this building is its fine, simple, clear... More

Ideal place of people love architecture. It started modern pond, and simple lines. The stones was magnificent. The exhibition cost 5 Euro in early 2017, the there was limited introduction for fresh visitors. The maintenance was also not as good as those by Gaudi in Barcelona.

This is a really, really small pavilion with barely anything to see. There is a statute, a small pool, a small lounge, and a gift shop. In my opinion, there really is nothing to see. I recommend that you go here if you have nothing better to do and you want to kill time.

very small and simple, but most modern buildings take the Barcelona Pavilion as their reference - and you can see why when you are here!

It was my reason for wanting to visit Barcelona in the first place. To visit and pay homage to Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion. For those of you who do not know, it was the German Pavilion first built in 1928-29 for the International Exposition in Barcelona, Spain it was demolished in 1930 and later on, they figured... More

Often forgotten due to the proximity with the Palau Nacional, the Mies van der Rohe Pavillion really is a must see if you like modern architecture.

Designed by Mies van der Rohe was erected on the occasion of the Universal Exhibition of 1929 as part of the German pavilion, he also designed the Barcelona chair especially for the Pavilion, a chair based on leather and metal profile, which is still marketed.

It was so nice to see this place. Took so many photos and loved every bit of it. What is good is that it's plain and not crowded like a museum where you get overwhelmed with room after room of the same art. This however was a pleasant and simple experience. A must see if you love architecture. Plus I... More

I really wanted to see this attraction as its in all my architecture books and I couldn't visit Barcelona without seeing it, there is a small fee to see inside and stupidly we paid it, if you walk round the back you could get in for free, nonetheless you need to see this if you appreciate a good building! but...

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Montjuic
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
