Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
This panorama was taken from the front of the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya. It was hand held, as the use of tripods here was not permitted. The building itself is vast and impressive, as is the panoramic view down over Plaça de la Cascades and on to Plaça Espanya. As can be seen in the picture, people come here simply to admire the views over the city as well as to admire the art within the museum itself.
