The center is located in the Raval historical district – near the MACBA museum of contemporary art – housed in an 18th-century building formerly known as Casa della Caritat (House of Charity) restored and enlarged in 1994.
Conceived as an institution open to the city and to independent artists, each year the CCCB presents a diverse program of events and activities – frequently focused on Catalan culture – which encompasses major special exhibitions, design awards, conferences, seminars, lectures, live performances, and concerts.
The CCCB, along with 4,000 square meters (43,000 square feet) of exhibition space, includes lecture halls, a theater, a media library, a shop, a restaurant, and the Mirador, a multipurpose space overlooking the heart of Barcelona.
