MNAC (Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya)

When we took the hop on hop off bus, our plan was to stay on the bus until all the spots have been seen and only then would we "hop off" to take a closer look. But when we spotted the domes of this structure, we couldn't resist hopping off.
This is a beautiful structure. Did not go in as we were pressed for time, but we managed to spend time exploring it's grounds.
From the museum, this is the view of Placa d'Espagna.

The museum sits high on a hill or something that we could see the rooftops. I always wanted to to be high enough to see the rooftops :) I know I'm that shallow!
This wide staircase has a vibe of Gaudi with all the tile mosaic on the both sides. I don't know if they were Gaudi's. Behind the benches is an escalator, we took that instead of the stairs.
This is the back of the museum. Couldn't help taking a shot as we hopped on another bus.

  8. Some museums can be just as astounding as a piece of architectural art as what's inside - this one in Barcelona is obviously one of them.
