Barcelona KEY, a space integrated into the city

Barcelona KEY will be located in the Fòrum neighborhood, one of the most creative and highly changing areas within the city.

People have gradually come to understand the logic behind the Fòrum space and its potential in accordance with their needs. Step by step, Barcelona Fòrum has gradually taken on a role in the life of Barcelona, becoming consolidated as a space for openness within the city.

Along with providing those services which are offered to the people, including entities for sports and entertainment, popular libraries, educational centers, etc., the Fòrum area offers new spaces of openness to the city. The BCN International Convention Center (CCIB), the Blue Museum, the Diagonal Mar shopping center, the International Sailing School and the Fòrum Port are facilities which open up new possibilities for the people.

It is an open environment which has demonstrated the great strength of its flexibility by hosting special events, such as the Forum of Cultures in 2004.

The Fòrum is a space filled with life that will allow Barcelona KEY to become integrated as a unique place.

  • More than 30 cultural spaces
  • Primavera sound
  • Barcelona Natural Sciences Museum
  • Diagonal Mar Shopping Center
