Centre d’Art Santa Mònica, or The Centre of Arts Santa Mònica, is located close to the Columbus Monument on La Rambla Avenue, on the side of El Raval of the Ciutat Vella (Old Town).
The Arts Santa Mònica is a home of international contemporary art, its focus, however, being placed especially on Catalan contemporary artwork. The building where the arts center is located on La Rambla number 7 is, in fact, an old 17th-century Renaissance convent that attracted national interest for its monumental value in the ’80s, and in 1988, the Arts Santa Mònica opened.
Over the years, the center has hosted several national – and international – traveling expositions showcasing the best of contemporary art including architecture, visual arts, performing arts, literature, gastronomy and design. The center doesn’t host a permanent collection but rather curates the exhibitions on the basis of current themes and reflections while actively seeking collaborations with other cultural institutions, both at the national and international level. Arts Santa Mònica has a central role in the region’s contemporary culture as it aims to promote and maintain the vitality of it by conducting research, implementing new structures and promoting artistic development and production via multidisciplinary channels and artistic collaboration.

The center’s entrance is free for anyone keen to explore creativity and innovation. Arts Santa Mònica also organizes educational and cultural events in its facilities, both directed for school children and adults.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.

Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.

Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.

Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day.
