This is a really good year-round spot to chill out. Given its location at the junction of Passeig de Gracìa and Diagonal it’s surprisingly quiet and peaceful. In the cooler months it’s a good place to check out an exhibition. During the summer, the garden, with its little parakeets, is a great place to cool off, maybe have a packed lunch, pretend to read a book, or just hang for a while. In the evening the garden and pavilion may come alive with music, discussion and debate.
The exhibitions here, about aspects of life as is lived, or was lived, in Catalunya, are always interesting. The Information Centre here is very good with very knowledgeable and helpful staff who manage a comprehensive range of materials in all the main European languages.
