  • An incredibly beautiful building that can be enjoyed from many vantage points. The views from there are really great, not sure if worth the visit/climb though. 
  • You can see the beautiful Palace Spain square views of Montjuic and soar into the top of the Hill. The National Palace is "pleasing". It is built as a exposition Palace and not actually used as the Palace, was held in Barcelona in 1929 for the Spain Pavilion.
