Centre Cultural Albareda

The Centre Cultural Albareda is a municipal facility run by Barcelona City Council and officially opened on 1 December 2012. It is a facility local neighbourhood associations had long been calling for. The venue consists of more than 1,870 m2 distributed across five floors, which are dedicated to social and cultural development activities in Barcelona and more specifically the neighbourhood's popular culture and traditions.

The cultural organisations based at the centre are: Gralles i Tabals del Poble Sec; Gralles dels Castellers del Poble Sec and SC Els Moderns.

You can see various features of festive imagery at the Centre: Sírius the Cat, the Diables of Poble Sec, the Three Chimneys of Paral·lel and the Ombra del Sol and Raig de Lluna capgrossos [big-headed papier-mâché figures], which were donated by Carla Aguilar.
