Historical building refurbished in order to be an arts venue. These days it hosts a Brins Eno exhibition, 77 Billion Paintings. The place is great, and Eno's installation too. It is worth more than one visit.

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
