Opened in 2002 in a former textile factory designed by renowned Modernista architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch, CaixaForum Barcelona has become one of the finest cultural centers in the cosmopolitan Catalan capital.

Beautifully located at the foot of Montjuïc, the museum offers a variety of attractions, including a permanent exhibition that pays tribute to Art Nouveau architecture, offering visitors an insight into the building’s history and design.

CaixaForum Barcelona plays host to an excellent selection of cutting-edge temporary exhibits, each with its own unique theme.

In addition to art, this innovative social and cultural center operated by “la Caixa” offers an elegant restaurant, a bookshop, and a dynamic cultural program with various family activities, conferences, as well as music and multimedia events.

Probably the building’s most striking feature, the entrance is marked by a state-of-the-art metal and glass sculpture designed by Japanese architect Arata Isozaki.
