I was especially looking forward to the history and museums in Barcelona and the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (also known as MNAC) didn’t disappoint. It’s worth it to go to this museum just to see the view from the front steps.
The MNAC is renowned in part for its collection of romanesque church painting. Here are just a few.
Hey look, I even found a chicken (of course if you look close enough, you’ll always find chickens.)
There is one Picasso in the museum and it’s pretty impressive:
And plenty of religious art:
Including one of our favorites – Saint George! (seen slaying a very tiny dragon here)
We also walked through rooms and rooms of contemporary art including stained glass.
Furniture inspired by Gaudi.
And paintings that took my breathe away.
After being in the museum for some time, it dawned on us that it was probably time to eat again.
So we said goodbye to MNAC and got back on the tour bus in order to find ourselves some lunch.
