Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya

The Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (MNAC) is housed in what was originally the Spanish Pavilion for the 1929 World's Fair. Since 1934, the museum has been home to one of the most precious collections of medieval European art: paintings, board games, painted wooden ceilings, sculptures, altarpieces and chests.

Among the highlights are the original Romanesque murals from churches and monasteries in remote Pyrenean valleys, which justify the MNAC’s fame around the world, including 'David and Goliath' and 'Christ as Lord of the World' from Taüll. The Gothic section is stunning, with an extensive collection of quality panel paintings. Since 1997, the ground floor has housed the private collection of the Catalan politician Francesc Cambó, and features works by Lucas Cranach, Tiepolo, Tintoretto, Goya and Titian.
