Hotel Miramar Barcelona is always on the side of culture and art. That is why the room "Prefunction" of the hotel, a crossing point until now, has been recently trurned into an art gallery. Thanks to an agreement with Pigment Gallery, Hotel Miramar is now exhibiting works by several artists, and these art pieces are also on sale. Pigment Gallery works to promote and disseminate contemporary art, with the aim of publicising emerging artists and exhibiting their works at a national and international level.
Every September Barcelona dresses up and gets ready for a big party: La Mercè (Our Lady of Mercy), patron of the Catalan capital, and the annual festival of the city since 1871.
