Centre d'Art Santa Mònica by Bed and Breakfast in Barcelona

Centre d’Art Santa Mònica by Bed and Breakfast in Barcelona

During the XVI century, after the Trent’s Council, many convents and monasteries were built-in Barcelona. One of them, the Order of the Discalced Augustinians, rented in 1618 a house located at the end of “La Rambla” almost touching the port, to live there.

Fortunately the convent of Santa Monica did not run the same fate as many others monasteries and churches of the city. It was saved from the fury of the protesters without being burned in the rebellion of 1835. The lack of maintenance caused the government of Catalunya to buy it and rehabilitate it. Due to the poor construction of the old monastery, there is very little left of the ancient construction, just a part of the residence of the monks and the cloister.

Today it is used by the Centre d’Art Santa Monica and shows us the historic Catalan avant-garde art exhibitions, mixed with the current art trends.

Free entrance: from Thursday to Sunday from 11hs to 21hs
Location: La Rambla 7 – Barcelona
Metro: line 3 (Drassanes)
