If you are in Barcelona and you like modern art, this museum is a must see.
The Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona, also known as MACBA, is a very central museum in the Catalan city in which numerous works of art made from the second half of the 20th century are exhibited.
It is one of the best things to see in Barcelona if you are a lover of this type of art and it has been declared a museum of national interest.
The visit to MACBA
The Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art is made up of several buildings that surround Plaça del Angels.
The largest, the main building, was built in 1995 and its modern architecture contrasts with the much older buildings on the surrounding streets.
Another of the buildings that houses the museum is the Convent of the Angels, which is located just in front of the main entrance.
The interior of the main building is made up of large, very bright white rooms that give the site a great majesty. In these rooms we can see more than 5,000 works of art that, as we have said before, were created from the second half of the 20th century and up to our times.
There are works by artists from all over the world, especially South America, Eastern European countries and Arab countries, ranging from abstract art to minimalist sculpture.
Therefore, if you are a lover of modern art, do not forget to visit this museum. If you are not a big fan of this type of art, we recommend that you do not visit it.
