The National Art Museum of Catalonia houses the most important collection of Romanesque mural paintings in the world and a collection of modern art that has recently been reinstalled. In the new display rooms you will find furniture and decorative art by Gaudí and Jujol that will take you back to the Modernista Barcelona of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The Roof-Viewpoint offers unique vistas over the city and is an ideal place for enjoying the spectacle of the Magic Fountain.

The Renaissance and Baroque collection rooms at the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya will be closed to the public from 30 May until the end of 2017, as a new presentation for the collection is being prepared.


The Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (National Art Museum of Catalonia) offers a singular display of Catalan art of all periods. Recent temporary exhibitions have reclaimed and brought to the fore the role played by Catalan artists in relation to the international art context. The museum is now also looking at contemporary creation with the aim of presenting new proposals and provoking a dialogue and critical revisions of the collection.


Enjoy the retrospective exhibition of this exceptional painter of the second half of the 15th century, Bartolomé de Cárdenas, alias El Bermejo (c. 1440 – c. 1501).

His oeuvre can be found in museums throughout Europe and the United States. Now we can also see his works at the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya. There will be some 50 pieces from the Museum's own collection, as well as works from other leading institutions such as the National Gallery in London, the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid, the Museo de Bellas Artes de Bilbao, the San Diego Museum of Art, the cathedral of Acqui Terme in Italy and the Barcelona cathedral. The latter is where his undeniable masterpiece comes from: Pietat Desplà.
