Concierge.com's insider take:
For one of its first forays into Barcelona's art scene, La Caixa bank converted modernist architect Puig i Cadafalch's Casarramona, a textile factory, into a state-of the-art gallery and added a modern entrance and a walkway by Japanese architect Arata Isozaki. The permanent collection of minimalist and abstract works includes a gargantuan mural by Sol LeWitt in the lobby, but it's the photography and contemporary art exhibits in the first floor's three light-filled galleries that are really special. A room for children holds workshops and activities related to whatever is currently showing—which makes a visit the Caixaforum a great family option.—Updated by Suzanne Wales
