Torre de les Aigües del Besòs

Torre de les Aigües del Besòs


The Besòs Water Tower and Vàlvules' House were born as an ambitious project at the end of the XIXth Century to distribute water to a part of Barcelona. Even this dream failed, new empreneurs bought and adapted the Tower as an industrial item. So this magnificent building, made entirely of brick, was part of a well known catalan industries such as Can Girona and MACOSA. But in 1993, the Tower was closed and abandoned.

Recently, the Tower has been recovered in an attemp to divulge the industrial heritage of Barcelona's coastline. With three years of rehabilitation, the Tower has improved its accessibility, respecting the construction.

Nowadays, the Tower has guided tours to show closer its history and its use as a viewpoint of Poblenou's industrial past. Next to the Tower, Vàlvules' House will become the headquarters of Poblenou's Historical Archive and will aim to spread the history of this quarter, organize activities related to culture and promote the patrimonial defense.

Museu Història de Catalunya (MHC)

Museu Història de Catalunya (MHC)

The aim of the Museum of the History of Catalonia is to put the history of Catalonia on display and make people aware of their shared heritage, and so help them identify with their national history.

The building that we know today as the Palau de Mar is the former General Stores, the sole building of Barcelona's Old Port still standing. The Stores were designed in 1881 by the engineer Maurici Garrán, the first director of the Barcelona Port Board of Works, and were intended for use as trading depots.

Museu Joan Abelló

Museu Joan Abelló

The Museo Joan Abelló is housed in a Modernist building built in 1908. It was opened in 1999 and it houses part of the foundation of the Joan Abelló collection which he donated to the town of Mollet.

The museum’s ethos is based on the permanent exhibition with Catalan artworks from the 19th and 20th centuries. At the same time, the Museum promotes contemporary art with temporary exhibitions and with the Mollet Art contest dedicated to young artists of our country.

The Museum consists of several spaces: The Artist’s House, a labyrinth where the visitor, little by little, discovers the artist’s complex, interesting and diverse collection and the Aparador, a space to produce and divulge the visual arts, an opening for the interdisciplinary nature of the language of emerging artists.

It has a wide activity programme for schools and families.
