CCCB Information

After more than twenty five years of continued programming, the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (Barcelona Contemporary Culture Centre) has consolidated its position as a focus of attraction for culture and creativity, not only for the city of Barcelona, but for the whole of Catalonia and Spain, as well as internationally. 

The CCCB is a place for production and creation as well as exhibition, a focal point of culture in Barcelona that brings together cultural actors and users committed to the idea that culture is a basic necessity.

SIGHTSEEING
Views over Barcelona from a high vantage point are always special. The Sala Mirador of the CCCB, located on its highest floor, you can behold Barcelona through the glass façade from an unusual vantage point: the sea, the Raval and the Gothic quarters, Montjuic, Tibidabo and the Collserola Tower. Magnificient vistas of the city of Barcelona from the Center’s most emblematic space. Open some Sundays during the year. Look up the specific dates.

THE BUILDING
The CCCB is located in a spot with a long history: the site of a 17th century church that became the monastery of Montalegre in the 13th century and a Jesuit seminary in the 16th century. In the 18th century, a military barracks and correctional facility was installed there. Finally, in the year 1802, King Charles IV of Spain authorised the creation of a charitable establishment, the Casa de Caritat (Almshouse) to provide shelter for the most disadvantaged members of society. Over time, the Casa de Caritat came to fund itself and it obtained income from very diverse sources. In the year 1868, responsibility for the establishment was transferred to the Provincial Council of Barcelona (Diputació), as result of the Public Charity Law of 1853. In contrast, during the short period of the Republican Generalitat (1932-1936), the Casa de Caritat was the exclusive responsibility of the Catalan government; in that period significant improvements were made, especially in the treatment of inmates and the secularisation of the teaching staff. The Casa de Caritat ceased to function in the year 1957 with the move to and inauguration of new premises in the Vall d’Hebron district (Llars Mundet).
