This was the flagship construction of the 1929 Fair. It is a big, luxurious palace similar to those of the European royalty.

The architects in charge of building this impressive structure were Enric Catalā i Catalā and Pedro Cendoya Oscoz.

The broad oval room, the widest in Europe, stands out in this monumental building.

In 1934 the Palau Nacional became the Museu d´Art de Catalunya, but in view of the rising of '36, it was transferred to Paris.

The architects Gae Aulenti and Enric Steegmann have now embarked on restoring the Palau, and reorganizing its interior, in order to improve the conditions of the museum.
