Museum of Contemporary Art
The Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art is situated in the once-shabby Raval District, just off La Rambla. Over the years its front plaza has become synonymous with international skateboarders, being fondly known as the famous MACBA, drawing skaters and creatives from around the world to unite against the backdrop of its chic white building. Being a work of art in itself, the Museum of Contemporary Art was designed to monopolise on natural light and the cool airy interiors confidently hold the works of modern art luminaries such as Basquiat, Klee, Tàpies and Barcelò. A perfect union of two art forms, MACBA and her throng of talented skateboarders is a sight to be experienced.
