This place is on la rambla and is a free exposition of "things" it's a quaint small exposition that is well worth a look. I suspect it will change to something else soon. Worth a look.

Great place to visit, nice interesting exhibitions from great (not very well-known) artists. The free guided tour of the gallery is highly recommendable, although they don't publicised it well enough.

The images were undoubtedly interesting and I'm generally happy I visited because I learnt much. However, given the informative nature of the exhibition, the communication is done terribly. The image descriptions look like a puzzle and it takes much time to figure out which description...More

Palau de la Virreina is a lovely building situated on La Rambla. Well worth a visit if you are walking down La Rambla.

Really interesting exhibit showcasing the struggles of the Chinese nation, their lack of freedom and the heavy laws imposed by its government. Anyone in Barcelona should prioritize this exhibit as it gives us an insight into a nation "protected" by barriers that crunches its citizens....More

Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble
authenticity protrudes from the many independent
record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
