College Library
“The library is located in the bowels of an 1874 water tank designed in part by Antoni Gaudí. The forgotten tank once supplied water to the Parc de la Ciutadella until it was purchased in the 1990s by Pompeu Fabra University and rehabilitated into a modern library. But for the addition of skylights, the original structure was lovingly preserved. The library gets very full during the school semester, so I’d recommend visiting when the students are on vacation. Coming here is like visiting an underground world.”
