FUNDACIÓ JOAN MIRÓ

Founded in 1975 by Joan Miró himself, who wanted it to be a contemporary arts centre, this is now a superb tribute to a man whose legacy as an artist and a Catalan is visible across the city. The museum holds more than 14,000 of his paintings, sketches and sculptures, tracing Miró’s evolution from an innovative Surrealist in the 1920s to one of the world’s most challenging modern artists in the 1960s.
