Closed for maintenance as of January 2019. It's in front of the museum of art, on the way up to Montjuic. When functioning, it should be elegant and impressive I would think.

Really good visit at night time. The show is a must and you do need to be there a bit early as all the best spots get taken. Highly recommended
