    At the foot of the hill of Montjuïc, the site of CaixaForum Barcelona is an old textile factory from the early 20th century. This building, in the Catalan Modernista style, is divided into five exhibition rooms, a large auditorium, multipurpose classrooms and workshops for educational use.

    It has over 12,000 m² dedicated to promoting culture, acting as a venue for art exhibitions, guided tours, films, concerts, debates and conferences, performance arts, cycles of literature and thought, multimedia art and educational programmes, among others.


    The building is one of Barcelona's most representative examples of Catalan Modernista architecture and was commissioned by Casimir Casaramona and designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch, one of the three leading exponents of this architectural style, together with Antoni Gaudí and Domènech i Montaner.

    For this factory's design, Puig i Cadafalch was awarded the Annual Prize for Artistic Buildings in 1913 and it was declared a Historical Monument of National Interest in 1976.

    After a long period of inactivity, "la Caixa" bought the property in 1993 and decided to give it a new function as a social, cultural and educational centre, providing it with the infrastructures befitting a modern cultural venue but without losing the original spirit of the design.

    Renowned architects Arata Isozaki, Francisco Javier Asarta, Roberto Luna and Robert Brufau were involved in the project to restore and extend the CaixaForum.


    Since it was inaugurated, CaixaForum has become one of the most dynamic, active and lively cultural venues in the city offering an extensive programme of social, cultural and educational interest for all kinds of audiences.

    The "la Caixa" Contemporary Art Collection, one of the most important in Spain, is on display in the form of temporary exhibitions.

    Dalí, Goya, Delacroix, Barceló, Lucien Freud, Cartier-Bresson, Le Corbusier, Chaplin, Pixar, Etruscan Princes, the Treasures of Arabia... Over a hundred exhibitions have been held at CaixaForum Barcelona since it opened.

    That's why the centre boasts one of the most complete and varied cultural agendas in Barcelona.
