Barcelona: National Art Museum of Catalonia II

The Palau Nacional is a huge building which embodies the academic classical style. 
Its facade is crowned by a great dome inspired by 
St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican City in Rome, 
flanked by two smaller domes, 
while four towers modeled on Santiago de Compostela Cathedral 
stand at the corners of the so-called Sala Oval.
