16th century onwards, this was a big old hospital, and it became bigger and more sprawling as needs expanded. There was talk of tearing it down, but a 1977 decree declared the building a National Historic Monument. Today, it’s one of Europe’s top centres of 20th century art, and a half bad centre of 19th century art. Other exhibits are just as excellent – these include a photo collection of the Spanish Civil War. Masters represented here include all the greats - Dali, Picasso, Miro and Guernica.
The bookshop has some excellent collections. The cafe is nice. The restaurant is yummy, if pricey. The most popular painting here is Picasso’s Guernica. The museum creates a strange vibe – it’s drab ancient form contrasts with the vivid artwork.
