CaixaForum Barcelona
The artwork here is almost secondary to its home: a 1911 former textile factory designed by Catalan architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch and inspired by medieval castles. The sprawling red-brick complex is comprised of several multi-level buildings featuring crenellated roofs, arches, and turrets connected by a series of courtyards. A modern white stone, glass, and steel entrance was added in 2002, when the complex was renovated and turned into an exhibition space for La Caixa Foundation's extensive art collection. Climb the stairs to the roof terrace for the best view of this treasure's rich architectural details—not to mention the magnificent domed National Art Museum of Catalonia just across the way.
