VIEWS FROM MNAC - BARCELONA, SPAIN

With so many art museums in Barcelona it can be a tough choice when deciding where to go. While the Picasso Museum gets a lot of visitors I don’t personally think it comes close to compare with MNAC, which is far more representative of Catalan artists. The Modern Art section is where I like to spend time, gazing at works by Granadina, Nonell, Casas, and even our man Picasso.

After touring MNAC have a coffee on its front terrace and take in the view of Barcelona and the steps leading down to Pl. Espanya. Watch out for cats! Probably because of its forest-like setting, MNAC and Pl. Espanya are crawling with kitties which dash in and out of the bushes on the museum’s grounds.

Where: Montjuïc Mountain

What: Collection of Catalan Fine Art

When: Tue – Sat: 10 to 7pm; Sun: 10 to 2:30pm; Mon: closed

    MNAC is brilliant, much better than the Picasso Museum, which I was really disappointed by. But my favourite of the lot (and I’ve seen them all!) is the Miro Museum on Montjuic. It’s a bit pricey to get in but the art – and the audio guide – left me feeling inspired and creative.

    Yes, my two faves are Miro and MNAC. Not sure but think Nancy would agree.
