Vacation apartments in Barcelona
Barcelona is one of the largest tourist destinations not only in Europe, but in the world. For a comfortable alternative to hotels, consider choosing short-term apartment rentals in Barcelona that constitute a successful and secure market in Europe.
Rental apartments in Barcelona cost less than hotel rooms of comparable sizes, and yet offer you a real home where you would love to come back after a day out in Barcelona.
You get all the advantages of independent living and working in a rental apartment: you may choose to cook in a fully-equipped kitchen, you may entertain guests in the living room, you have the privacy of your own bedroom. Would you have all that in a hotel? More and more travellers prefer to rent an apartment in Barcelona for these reasons.
If you frequently travel with family or friends, you know how difficult it may be to book adjacent spacious rooms in a hotel. 1-, 2- or 3-bedroom apartments in Barcelona are easy to find. What is more, you pay per apartment, not per guest, which allows you to cut rental costs considerably, and spend quality time together.
Barcelona is a city you would not want to leave and where you would love to come back, but if you are set on more exploring, we also offer apartment, cottage and villa short-term and long-term rentals all over Europe and North America!

CaixaForum Barcelona

Montjuïc and the majestic Palau Nacional (MNAC) attract all of the attention of tourists and locals strolling around Plaça Espanya. It is not surprising that few walk up to the CaixaForum Social and Cultural Centre in Barcelona, which is housed in the peculiar modernist factory, built by Josep Puig i Cadafalch, and regularly holds interesting art and history exhibitions.

The building with turrets, weаther vanes, delicate wrought ironwork and large windows resembles the Castell dels Tres Dragons in Parc de la Ciutadella more then a factory commissioned by the industrial magnate Casimir Casaramona. Before its closure in 1919 it had been fully functional and had won numerous awards for its creator, Josep Puig i Cadafalch. After the closure the factory stood abandoned until in 1940 a police station moved in. In 1963 La Caixa savings bank bought the building and got it declared a historic monument in 1976. In 2002 CaixaForum Barcelona at last opened its doors for visitors who come to numerous exhibitions dedicated to Catalan artists and international talents alike, to special lectures and seminars. A collection of photos and artifacts inside tells the story of the factory, gives some information on Casimir Casaramona and on Josep Puig i Cadafalch himself.

Аdmission to Caixa Forum is free for clients of La Caixa bank and 4€ for general public. The exhibitions are regularly changed and exhibits rotated. There are usually no crowds or jams, despite the fact that CaixaForum Barcelona regularly has works of Salvador Dalí, Pablo Picasso and Antoni Tàpies on display. Exhibition halls are connected not only by hallways, but also by open-air passageways and small cobbled courtyards where visitors can rest on one of many benches or play hide-and-seek with children – Caixa Forum is very family-friendly. An obligatory trip up to the roof of the factory will reward you with a fantastic view of the Palau Nacional, Montjuïc, and the rest of Barcelona. Watch your step: the floor of the roof is undulating – yet another creative godsend from the Modernist movement.
