  • Santa Eulàlia Festival

    Santa Eulàlia Festival

    The origins of the Fiestas of Santa Eulàlia are rooted in the legend of Barcelona's second patron saint and are a focal point for the city's main winter celebrations.

    The festivities take place between 7 and 12 February over a weekend full of activities rooted in popular culture and traditions, with a children's audience very much in mind: giants, the correfoc (groups of ‘demons’ letting off fireworks in the streets) and human tower builders. There are also folkloric dance groups, the ‘colles bastoneres’ who have invited dance troupes from all over to take part in the first ever Diada bastonera de Santa Eulàlia as a celebration of the art.

    This year also marks the centenary celebrations of the New Giants of the House of Charity which coincide with the 160th anniversary of the Gegants Vells (Old Giants).

These are animals which are now extinct and the saber-toothed tiger is one notable example. Through the paleontological remains found in this exceptionally well preserved site, the Cosmocaixa is offering us a journey to the past to learn about the fauna which previously populated our lands, such as the giant tortoise, the mastodon, and giraffes and horses which we no longer see in today's world.

  • Picasso the poet

    Picasso the poet

    Picasso had a love of words, writing, poetry and language from a young age. His friend André Breton enshrined this side of Picasso's personality in 1935 with a text published in Cahiers d’Art. This painting genius acknowledged that “All the arts are ultimately one and the same. One can write a painting with words just as one can paint sensations in a poem.” The temporary exhibition entitled Picasso Poeta reveals the importance of poetry writing to his creative career and introduces us to his manuscripts and his sources, the connection between his writings and paintings and, above all, his ingenuity as a poet.
