The Palau Nacional, the most spectacular building in Spain Square, was built for the Universal Exposition of 1929,with the intent to build a monumental, grandiose and enormous building. The architects were Enric Català and Pedro Cendoya, with the collaboration of Pere Domènech i Roure. The palace has undergone some restorations by the Italian architect Gae Aulenti, and now houses the Catalonia National Art Museum (MNAC). The Museum is open from 10am, and is free on the first Thursday of each month.

Directions: Down from Plaza de Espana and at the top of the flight of stairs.
