Art Museum
“More than 2,000 m2 of gallery space showcase almost one thousand exhibits, including sarcophagi, mummies, jewellery and amulets, to give us a greater understanding of everyday life and the prevailing customs of the ancient civilisation of the Pharaohs. The Museu Egipci de Barcelona runs guided tours of its collections led by Egyptologists, which are essential in order to give visitors a greater understanding and knowledge of Egyptian culture and civilisation. In addition to the permanent collections and the temporary exhibitions, the museum also organises other activities which enable visitors to enjoy the collections in an entertaining, fun way. These activities include night-time guided tours featuring re-enactments of scenes by actors. Another of the activities is the Eternal Banquet ("Banquet Etern"), a guided tour centring on Egyptian cuisine which gives visitors the opportunity to taste products that were part of the diet of this ancient civilisation.”

“A very nice art gallery close to Passeig Sant Joan, with interesting exhibitions. Very much worth a visit. I would recommend a dinner at Hawker 45 nearby thereafter. ”

Art Gallery
“You wouldn’t think pets were allowed at this unusual concept store, one of the city’s most avant-garde places with three different spaces dedicated to art, food, and fashion. But you’ll always find trendsetters there hanging around with their trendy dogs—the bigger, the better. Wer-Haus is located in an old garage, so there’s plenty of space! Brands like Lemaire, Raf Simons, and Études make it one of the chicest places in town. There’s also a wonderful selection of art and photography books. We’re surprised by the visual displays and we visit whenever we want to get inspired by emerging artists.”

Art Gallery
“Everyone was excited when Rocío Santa Cruz opened this gallery in 2015. It represents some of Spain’s most interesting audiovisual artists. Check out Miguel Trillo—who chronicled La Movida Madrileña counterculture back in the ’80s—to late fashion photographer Oriol Maspons to young filmmaker Lois Patiño, who showcases his most avant-garde work here. Rocío Santa Cruz is well known in the local art world, having been in charge of Raiña Lupa for many years, which was a gallery that doubled as an independent publishing house and organized events like Arts Libris, an independent book fair.”
