Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya

I'll be honest. I enjoyed the journey to Barcelona's Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya as much as I did looking around at what's inside. In the photo below (which is the view from the front of the MNAC), if you look back behind the fountain, you'll see a couple of symmetrical brick towers. It think that's about where we got off the metro.

Then we walked, through some plazas and up a series of staircases that were surrounded by some lovely gardens and landscaping. Our approach also gave us an opportunity to take in the incredible building itself, which was built for the 1929 World's Fair.
