Caixa Forum

Originally designed by the renowned architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch, the CaixaForum's striking façade will capture your attention even before you step inside. Once an old textile factory, the building has been brilliantly repurposed, blending the rich history of its industrial past with cutting-edge architectural design.

Caixa Forum is an art gallery and a social, cultural centre that exhibits modern, contemporary and ancient art that originated from different cultures. The building first operated as a textile factory. Then in 1929, it was used as a warehouse for the Barcelona World Fair. Later on, in 1992 La Caixa restored the building to its artistic value now known as Caixa Forum.

As you immerse yourself in the wonders of the CaixaForum, don't forget to take a moment to appreciate the lush vertical garden that graces the building's exterior. Designed by French botanist Patrick Blanc, this unique green wall is not only a visual treat but also a reminder of the harmonious relationship between art and nature.

The CaixaForum is a popular with the kids and for this reason it is a great visit for famalies to enjoy.
