SIGHTSEEING
Views of Barcelona from a lofty vantage point are always special. At the Sala Mirador in the CCCB, located on the top floor, you can behold Barcelona through a glass façade from an unusual vantage point: the sea, Raval and Gothic quarters, Montjuïc, Tibidabo and Collserola Tower stretching out before you. Magnificent panoramas of the city of Barcelona from the centre’s most iconic space. Open on various Sundays throughout the year. Check specific dates.

THE BUILDING
The CCCB is located on a site with a long history, as it once was the location of a 12th-century church that later 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 here. Finally, in the year 1802, King Charles IV of Spain authorized the creation of a charitable establishment, the Casa de Caritat (Almshouse), in order to provide shelter for the most disadvantaged members of society. Over time, the Casa de Caritat came to fund itself and obtained income from very diverse sources. In the year 1868, responsibility for the establishment was transferred to the Barcelona Provincial Council as a result of the Public Charity Law of 1853. In contrast, during the short period of the Republican Catalan Government (1932-1936), the Casa de Caritat came under its exclusive jurisdiction and major improvements were introduced during this period, especially in the treatment of inmates and secularisation of teaching staff. The Casa de Caritat ceased to function in the year 1957, when it was moved to new premises that were inaugurated in the Vall d’Hebron district (Llars Mundet).
