But there’s more! Read on to discover some of Barcelona’s most captivating exhibitions – including a unique immersive experience coming exclusively to Spain for the first time!

Fira de Barcelona

Fira de Barcelona was established in 1932 to be a reflection of business activity and social change, acting as both an exhibit for innovations from different sectors as well as driving economic promotion for companies through international exposure. Boasting over 200 exhibition spaces as well as a convention center, Fira will host over 270 shows and ceremonies this year alone with about 2.5 million expected visitors expected. Key areas and themes will include technology events and those focused on health.

Fira de Barcelona will not permit companies that owe debts to us from building without first clearing this debt completely and in full before entering its Halls for build-up. Furthermore, over-arching structures may only be constructed if their proportions and visual impact do not suffer as a result.

Exhibitors cannot use mechanical or electronic apparatus for sound reproduction on their stands. However, exhibitors who wish to add audiovisual or multimedia works should obtain permission from the entity responsible (AGEDI for phonograms or SGAE for films) according to the guidelines laid out in their services catalog.

All materials arriving in the Halls must be coordinated so they are received by personnel authorized by their exhibitor in the delivery zone, or else they must be removed within 24 hours – failure to do so could incur extra removal costs for exhibitors.

The general rule dictates that exhibition areas and buildings be free from packaging at least 24 hours before an event opens; failing to do so will incur an extra cleaning surcharge equaling 50% of cleaning costs.

All staff who wish to enter the exhibition space who do not belong to an exhibiting company must request a work pass from the Head of Services by providing them with their Contribution Certificate for the month prior.

Fundacio Joan Miro

Fundacio Joan Miro should be included as part of any art lover’s visit to Barcelona, as its largest collection of Catalan artist Joan Miro will leave you breathless.

The foundation was initiated and opened by the painter himself and opened for public viewing in 1975. He donated many of his works, as well as gifts from artists like Pilar Juncosa, Joan Prats, and Kazumasa Katsutas – with many featuring fantasy allegories characteristic of his signature style.

Joan Miro was an accomplished multi-talented artist, skilled as a painter, sculptor, and graphic artist. His art was heavily influenced by different movements such as Cubism and Fauvism throughout his career. In their early years he worked as an accountant at a drug store; following a nervous breakdown due to illness with typhus he made a sudden transformation towards art studies at various academies before eventually working professionally as an artist.

Joan Miro became one of the main symbols of Barcelona during his time there alongside Gaudi and Picasso. An active supporter of Catalonia and its nationality, he used his work to express these ideas through art.

Fundacio Joan Miro offers both its permanent collection and various exhibitions by contemporary artists. These showcases enable visitors to discover an abundance of styles and techniques while encouraging dialogue between visitors and artworks.

Josep Lluis Sert is Joan Miro’s architect friend and the museum building designer. It stands on Montjuic Mountain as an impressive example of Rationalist architecture; perfectly complementing Miro’s unique works while emphasizing their relationship between art and nature.

Apart from its permanent collection, the Foundation boasts an expansive library and offers educational activities specifically geared toward children – such as its play “Miro Universe”. Additionally, their permanent collection is sure to delight young visitors; making this museum an absolute must-see attraction when visiting Barcelona!


MACBA (Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona), designed by American architect Richard Meier, has quickly become one of the city’s most beloved museums since opening its doors to visitors in 1995. Locals and tourists alike flock to see its impressive permanent collection of Catalan art from the mid-20th century onwards.

The museum boasts a diverse collection of innovative art that ranges from conceptual painting and poetry readings to photography and architecture exhibitions aimed at sparking debate and stimulating thought processes.

Visitors of MACBA will find works by both Catalan artists and internationally acclaimed artists, including some interesting pieces that explore the intersection between art and politics – for instance, Gogo’s Tejedora 91/31 is designed to explore this idea – by using textile weft and warp techniques aimed at creating dialogues between space and void; similarly Eduardo Chillida sculptures attempt to establish communication between volume and space.

In the permanent collection are paintings by Joan Miro such as ‘Oiseau’ and ‘Fluttering Hearts’ as well as works by Antoni Tapies including Self-Portrait with Red Hat and Tejedora del Sol (Fluttering Paperwork). There are also sculptures by Gego and Felix Gonzales Torres as well as pieces created by members of Dau al Set who were inspired by Joan Miro.

MACBA is open almost all year, closing only between December 25th and January 1st. A visit is free with your Barcelona City Pass when showing at its ticket office; bring plenty of water as it’s typically very hot in the El Raval district where this museum lies. Also, take time out to watch skaters who regularly perform incredible gravity-defying tricks and flips on their boards in the area south of MACBA; they provide an unforgettable spectacle!
