The Catalan National Museum of Art, an emblematic building dating from the International Exhibition of 1929, is located in the mountain of Montjuic, with spectacular views of the city. The collection of Romanesque art is considered one of the most comprehensive in the world, but there are also a wide range of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque works. Velazquez, Zurbaran, Ribera and Bartolome Bermejo are all represented in the MNAC with impressive works. The museum has grown considerably thanks to the collection of Francesc Cambo and a loan from the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, which includes not only classic paintings by Fra Angelico, Canaletto and Lucas Cranach but also important works by Catalan artists such as Mariano Fortuny, Lluis Graner, Ramon Casas and Antoni Tapies. Recently, the MNAC has acquired several works by Pablo Picasso.
