  • Place that goes unnoticed between the Rambla and the Columbus Monument. There are different exhibits throughout the year and for free.

  • Arts Santa Mònica is a cultural center that takes advantage of the former convent of Santa Monica, of the Barefoot Augustinians of 1636, the only one that remains after the Secularization of 1835. Very austere classical lines, without ornamentation, it is focused by a cloister which is the most remarkable element. The Church located in the North Wing, replaces the previous one, destroyed in 1936. As headquarters and as a parish church had used the neighborhood until it became a center of art through reform designed by architects David and Albert Viaplana. The most prominent and characteristic of the building is the access via the exterior ramp that allows a privileged view of the Rambla and acts as a large open balcony that connects the interior with the exterior.

  • As usual in Barcelona, the architecture is very interesting. Unusual building, very functional but also artistic. They have a very diverse selection of events here, including art galleries, live theatre and films from around the world. Nice coffee shop with toilets a bonus.
  • Excellent position, nice building, interesting exhibitions and performances. It would deserve more visibility. Its events should be more efectivly advertised.
