Built for the International Exposition of 1929, the Palau Nacional is the headquarters of the Catalan National Art Museum. Boasting an area of close to 50,000 m2, the Palau Nacional is an enormous building typical of the academic classicist models of the period during the universal expositions. Its facade is crowned by a large dome that takes its inspiration from the St Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican; two smaller ones, one on each side, and four towers inspired by the Santiago de Compostela Cathedral.

It is located on Montjuïc mountain, in a privileged setting that offers visitors a unique and magnificent view of Barcelona. Visitors can enter the Palau Nacional from the front through a large set of steps on Avda Reina Maria Cristina, flanked halfway by the large, lit-up and monumental Carles Buïgas fountains.
