An emblematic venue in the  heart of Tarragona

This building, designed in the 1950s, has gradually transformed as the social and cultural needs of the people of Tarragona have also changed. Today it's a meeting place for Tarragona and its surrounding area.

At the beginning of the 1950s, Tarragona architect Pujol i Sevil designed this building of neoclassical style to be the home of "la Caixa" in the city.

The library and an exhibition room for the Foundation were located in the part looking out onto Calle Cristòfor Colom. Later, in 2001, a social and cultural centre with more space was added for exhibitions, as well as an auditorium.

In 2008 the centre finally became CaixaForum and, since then, it has held valuable temporary exhibitions such as the one on Cartier-Bresson, the exhibition on Mongolian culture and the ones on Chillida and Mucha.

CaixaForum now offers activities including music, debates, film cycles, talks and workshops designed to surprise visitors and enhance the city's cultural attractions.
