Opened in 1994, the Centre de Cultura ContemporÓnia de Barcelona (CCCB), along with MACBA next door, leads the charge on modern artistic happenings in the city with a lively programme of exhibitions, festivals and concerts. With cutting-edge and fun events like the Drapart International Recycling Festival, the Hipnotik Meeting (a hip hop music festival) and the perenially popular Gandules ('Deckchairs') open air film festival there's never a dull moment at the CCCB. Ever keen to promote relevant debates and act a platform for aspiring artists the centre has become one of the most important forums of thought in Barcelona.


One of the best museums in Barcelona - they always have a selection of genuinely interesting exhibitions. Plus, you can go for free on Sundays!

A great space. They normally hold the World Press Exhibition here each year and that's def. one to look out for... also used during Sonar by day festival! Never made it to Gandules but will try this year. Sounds great.
