Free Saturday Afternoons at MNAC

Come Saturday afternoons, I love to wander the galleries at one of Barcelona's most beautiful art museums, MNAC, housed in Montjuïc Palace. Beyond the impressive collections of Catalan paintings, prints, sculpture and furniture (including masterpieces by the likes of Dali and Picasso), there's the building itself, with its painted ceilings, and elegant domes and columns, and the sweeping views of Barcelona from the lobby and the rooftop viewpoint. It's an ideal place to sketch, too.

When I go, I like to pick up postcards and paper goods printed with my favorite pieces in the gift shop.

Local tip: The permanent collection at MNAC is free of charge Saturdays after 3pm, first Sundays of every month, and regional holidays. If you're only in Barcelona for a short while, make a day of it, spending the morning hiking or exploring other museums on Montjuïc before taking a turn around MNAC when the clock strikes 3.
