Expert review of CaixaForum
This handsome red-brick Modernista building was once a textile factory, but after a dramatic renovation with a Louvre-esque entrance plaza by Arata Isozaki, it's become one of the best exhibition spaces in the city. There is no permanent collection (though there is a fabulous Sol LeWitt mural in the entrance hall), but I've yet to see a dull show here, so it's safe to take pot luck.
The CaixaForum gift shop is also worth a visit, for an altogether classier breed of souvenir.
Entrance is free, with the exception of one or two temporary shows a year (prices vary).
