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.

El Raval
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
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day
