History of Museu nacional d'art de catalunya at Barcelona
National Museum of Art of Catalonia. Constructed for the International Exhibition in 1929, it is located in the National Palace, an eclectic building of 32,000 m2 in the mountain of Montjuïc. The National Museum of Art of Catalonia (MNAC) was inaugurated in 1934. In the staircases of the Palace are the famous waterfalls of Carles Buïgas. From 1990, when it was declared National Museum, new sections and entities have been incorporated to the MNAC. It exhibits one of the most complete collections of Romanesque art around the world and preserves approximately 250,000 works from the Gothic, Renaissance, baroque and rococo periods, as well as pieces from the Catalan school and some by Zurbarán, El Greco, Goya and Picasso.
