Movie Theatre
“A government-funded theater that does a fantastic job celebrating Spain’s film culture. They program full seasons from the country’s best auteurs. A good place to go revisit classics on the big screen and discover obscure independent filmmakers. The Filmoteca also has a wonderful library of film-related books, videos, and magazines.”

Library
“Biblioteca Jaume Fuster was inaugurated in 2005, and a year later won the FAD Architecture Prize. It’s a gorgeous structure. Its four floors contain an amphitheater, auditorium, exhibition hall for art, a children’s space, a music room, a multimedia area, and a cafeteria. You can spend hours roaming around here. In addition to its impressive collection of literature, the library keeps a large catalogue of travel guides and books. It’s also open Sundays, a good time to go as it’s usually quiet.”

Cultural Center
“You might recognize this modernist library as it’s commonly used as a backdrop for films, documentaries, and interviews with prominent cultural figures. It’s inside the Ateneu, a civil association founded in 1860 that promotes culture in the city. One of the more well-stocked libraries you’ll come across. The library is housed in the Palazzo Savassona, a manor house identified as having Cultural Interest and Historical Heritage of Spain. The library is decorated with mural paintings by Francesc Pla depicting mythological themes. The building itself is spectacular and well worth a visit.”
