CaixaForum

CaixaForum is housed inside the former textile mill Casaramona, which was designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch, and offers a wide range of events with a broad appeal: exhibitions of ancient, modern and contemporary art, which make CaixaForum one of Barcelona's most dynamic, active and vibrant venues. Exhibitions devoted to international artists, together with concerts, film screenings, debates and lectures, performing-arts events, sessions about literature and contemporary thought, multimedia art and family activities make the old factory a key attraction. "Check the programme of exhibitions".

CaixaForum brings together technology and creativity with Symphony, an immersive audiovisual experience that takes you on a journey through emotions and music. This VR experience combines the latest technology and visual and musical sensitivity and creativity. With compositions by Beethoven, Mahler and Bernstein performed by the Mahler Chamber Orchestra conducted by Gustavo Dudamel, the audience can experience and enjoy classical music like one of the musicians in the orchestra.

In addition to this, CaixaForum has opened an exhibition space and is running a series of guided tours, entitled "Modernisme-Modernity. Tours of the Former Modernista Factory", which reveal the hidden details of the former textile mill. The exhibition gives us an insight into the history of the building and the figure of Josep Puig i Cadafalch, who, along with Domènech i Montaner and Antoni Gaudí, was one of the leading lights of modernista architecture.
