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.
