Barcelona has been like a boiling pot for weeks, in a constant heat wave that is just today giving us a slight truce sign. During weekdays we almost jump from the work’s AC to ours at home but I feel I’m missing out if I don’t enjoy our city during weekends, so we planned a visit to the National Museum (MNAC) this last Saturday.
A museum visit is always nice, you get to learn something new and enjoy some silent time that makes you feel like in a bubble away from the bustling city. The MNAC comes with an extra, Barcelona views and free entrance on Saturday afternoons – both for the collection and the temporary exhibitions. Since there was a photography exhibition we thought our visit was a must and that we could take some pics of Barcelona & the museum while showing also a very summery dress I got during sales.
To get to the museum there is a moderate way up which is usually quite easy to climb, but with the heat it is suggested that you stop to take pictures (easy, right? the views are quite great), bring water and use the automatic staircases, ha! During your way up you will find the Venetian towers (those orangey ones at the beginning), some congress buildings, the famous Montjuïc fountains and the four columns, a national monument.
My favorite part from the Museum is the Modern Art wing with amazing Art Nouveau pieces, the same period from the most famous buildings (aka Gaudí) in Barcelona. Although if you are into Medieval art they have one of the best collections in Europe. I also like to just spend time hanging in the Auditorium.
How was your weekend? Do you have any (chilly or not) favorite getaway in your city? Which is your summer uniform?
