Lovers of art now have an added incentive to make a weekend trip to Barcelona to enjoy some of the best museums and internationally renowned cultural centers the city has to offer. The U232 Hotel has created the Art Weekend Package, which, apart from a stay at the hotel, includes entry to seven of the most renowned cultural facilities in Barcelona. Guests can spend unforgettable days visiting the exhibitions on in Barcelona whilst also enjoying the services offered by this hotel full of its own particular personality.

Barcelona has plenty to offer those interested in art from painting to sculpture, architecture and photography. Everything from Romanesque to the most up-to-date innovative art, including, of course, the modernism of Gaudí. The unique package dedicated to lovers of art includes a two night stay at the U232 Hotel, a welcome drink at the U232 bar and a full buffet breakfast.

The Art Weekend trail starts just a few meters from Las Ramblas, taking visitors to the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA). Right next to this museum is the Center of Contemporary Culture of Barcelona (CCCB) which hosts regular exhibitions of artwork including photographs, paintings, sculptures and frescoes from around the world and from different periods.

At the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (MNAC) visitors can enjoy amazing works of Catalan Romanesque art. Not far from there is the Joan Miró Foundation which has many works by the famous artist as well as showing some works representing the latest trends in contemporary art. La Pedrera is another center included the Art Weekend package. This Gaudí building is sure to leave an impression on visitors. The U232 packages concludes with the Antoni Tapies Foundation and the Picasso Museum, both dedicated to the life and work of these renowned Spanish artists.

The hotel itself hosts a permanent exhibition of photographs of Barcelona created over the last 30 years by the Barcelona-based Swedish photographer, Maria Espeus. With a very personal approach, and in black and white, Espeus manages to take the guest of the U232 Hotel through unique moments of the recent past of Barcelona.
