The National Museum of Catalan Art is hosted by a magnificent palace above the fountains of Montjuic. It is categorized by many as the best museum in Barcelona and a visit is really worth it. Here are exhibited works of Catalan art in Renaissance and Romanian Gothic style between the 11th and 18th centuries.
National Museum of Catalan Art
The museum is very interesting to see but its visit can take a long time as it is very large. MNAC exhibits all forms of art; sculpture, painting, art objects, drawings, engravings, photography and a numismatic collection. The main objective of the museum is to detail the general history of Catalan art from the Romanian period until the middle of the last century.
At MNAC are exhibited works by great painters such as El Greco, Rubens, Zurbaran, Velazquez, Cranach. The museum deals with all forms of art and insists on how it was expected on Catalan artists.
