The hill of Montjuïc is one of the places in Barcelona literally steeped in history as it was used by the Romans as a stone quarry. At present, this area boasts a large number of cultural venues such as the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (National Art Museum of Catalonia), housed in the Palau Nacional (National Palace), a building dating back to the early 20th century when it was built for the 1929 Barcelona World Expo. Aside from its permanent collections, this museum has a very important collection of Romanesque art. Since 1975, Montjuïc has been home to the Fundació Joan Miró, and at the foot of the hill, the CaixaForum cultural centre always offers exhibitions, activities and concerts. The Museu d’Arqueologia de Catalunya (Catalan Museum of Archaeology) is also worth a visit on this cultural tour of Montjuïc. The same goes for the Pavelló Mies van der Rohe (Mies van der Rohe Pavilion), which was also built for the 1929 Barcelona World Expo.
