The hotel conserves the original façade of the palace built on this site in 1929, when Barcelona was celebrating its second Universal Exhibition. Whereas the first Universal Exhibition, in 1889, allowed the modernisation of the centre of the city, this second exhibition led to the reconstruction of the Montjuic area, with many buildings in the early twentieth century “novecentismo” style that have become authentic emblems of the city: the Plaza de España (Spain Square), the “Poble Espanyol” (Spanish Village), and, of course, the palace that is now our hotel. The exhibition’s gardens, which added character to a large part of Montjuic, were designed by Forestier, and are an authentic display of the most representative species of the Mediterranean coast, a place where visitors can forget the outside world during an evening stroll.
The palace, designed by the famous architect Ramon Raventós and inaugurated by King Alfonso XIII, was the scene of elegant banquets and balls up until 1959, when the Spanish Television studios were installed there. In 1983. the studios were moved to Sant Cugat, and the building was left empty.
In 2006, following an imaginative restoration directed by the famous architect Óscar Tusquets, the palace recuperated its original elegance and glory, with the addition of a brilliant avant-garde décor and a broad range of deluxe services.
Now, the Hotel Miramar Barcelona is an exclusive lodging house that allows visitors to enjoy Barcelona from a privileged setting.
