The CCCB is a space where contemporary culture is created, discussed, and explored; where artistic methods and mediums come together amidst a vibrant and interdisciplinary backdrop of programs and special events.

The Contemporary Culture Center of Barcelona is a truly exciting cultural center, developed in the 1990's. Nestled in the Raval neighborhood, the CCCB stands in what was first a 12th century church, later a Jesuit seminary, and finally a charity hospital named Casa de la Caritat. Its core programming is focused on the city and urban culture.
Through thematic exhibitions and unique production formats, the CCCB’s primary goals are to promote creative research and spread knowledge, manifesting the urban phenomenon of generating art while acting as a hotbed for sociological and cosmopolitan change and innovation.
Its calendar is thusly filled to the brim with debates, festivals, live concerts, film screenings, and conferences, all of which invite audiences to reflect upon life in the city, the use of public spaces, and other themes as they arise in contemporary society.
A contemporany cultural icon
if you have a few extra time in Barcelona, I would definitely recommend to visit CCCB. It's not a museum but a cultural center focused in exploring the borders of the present. It's free on Sundays and the rest of the year the ticket cost around 6 euros.
