The Palau Nacional (en: National Palace), situated in Montjuïc (Barcelona), is a palace constructed between the years 1926 and 1929 for the 1929 International Exhibition in Barcelona. Since 1934 it has been home to the National Art Museum of Catalonia. It was the main building of the exhibition, realised by Eugenio Cendoya and Eugene Henry Catà under the supervision of Pere Domènech i Roura, which disregarded the initial project proposed by Puig i Cadafalch and Guillermo Busquets. The palace’s Oval Room was host to the opening ceremony of the Exhibition, presided by Alfons XIII and Queen Victòria Eugènia.
