el born

El Born Centre Cultural is an unique and exceptional place that gathers three centuries of our history. Under the cast-iron structure of the iconic 19th century marketplace lies the Barcelona of 1700, the prosperous city that suffered the siege of 1714 and that put up an epic and heroic resistance before Catalonia’s national liberties were eventually lost, yet to be restored three centuries later.

From residents of the neighborhood of La Ribera, who can walk through the complex as part of their everyday route, to visitors from other parts who are interested in finding out more about this key location and events from the history of Catalonia, and from school children from across the country to people with more years and memories – they will all bear witness to the evolution of this space from a marketplace to a cultural venue. El Born CC is intended as an intergenerational, multidisciplinary landmark open to people of all backgrounds and nationalities.

Epic, exciting, thought-provoking, memorable, unique, open, inclusive, dynamic, integrated, popular and creative – these are just some of the adjectives that define the experience of entering El Born Centre Cultural, whether it be simply passing through on your way somewhere else or staying for a longer visit, attending a regular or a one-off event or really exploring this country’s history in depth.

One will never experience two identical visits to El Born CC, a space that faithfully records past events and helps to give global recognition to the history of the Catalan nation.
