Find culture in Barcelona
Type of place
Gaudi is the first word that springs to the page whenever culture and Barcelona are thrown together in the same sentence, but in fact the Catalan capital has much more to offer than the architectural wonders of one of the 20th centuries most enigmatic minds. Picasso went through his Blue Period during his time in the city, the works of Miro and Montaner are on show for everyone to see and Salvador Dali's Museum is just up the road in Figueres. Not that Barcelona is resting on its laurels: modern culture abounds, nowhere more than the MACBA centre and CCCB, whilst a rich programme of events and festivals keeps cogs ticking and tongues wagging. Check out our culture directory for a full list of Barcelona's museums, churches, art galleries, theatres, monuments and other points of cultural interest. For more fun things to do, activities and tours, head instead to our Entertainment section where you'll find info on parks, cinemas, sports and much more.
