Nature, culture and history

In a privileged setting within Montjuïc Park, the CaixaForum has become one of the most important cultural centres in Barcelona. Its journey began in 2002, on the initiative and under the management of Fundació La Caixa, and it provides a space for culture and art, as well as educational activities, covering all disciplines.

It is housed in an old textile factory designed by the modernist architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch for the industrial firm Casimir Casaramona.Its functional, modernist design, structured horizontally with a series of single storey rooms, was highly innovative for its time and today it has a very special historical value.

A dynamic centre

As one of the most important cultural centres in the city,the CaixaForum holds temporary exhibitions on some of the major cultures from the past,modern and contemporary art,master photographers of the 20th century and tendencies in contemporary plastic arts.Its conferences and programmes, which cover all kinds of subjects and disciplines, are also widely known and for this reason it has become a reference point for all those with an interest in culture in Barcelona.
