In order to appreciate the importance of the sea as a driving force in the history of Barcelona, the Museum of the History of the City (MUHBA) is putting on a double exhibition. On the one hand, the Saló del Tinell is showing “The Medieval Metamorphosis, 13th-15th centuries” and, as a counterpoint, in the Chapel of Santa Àgata, “The conquest of the coastline, from the 20th to the 21st century”. The first one reflects on how the municipality of Barcelona emerged thanks to the generation of resources and social diversification as well as the economic and sociopolitical model that descended into crisis in the second half of the 15th century. The second exhibition explores the opening up of Barcelona to the sea at the end of both the 19th and 20th centuries.
