Centre d'Art Santa Mònica - an art and cultural centre or CASM is located at the beginning of the lively La Rambla Street, in a former 17th century renaissance style monastery. In 1984 the building received National historic landmark status. Its ancient architecture, carefully preserved and renovated, has obtained a present-day air, as well. One of its modern elements is a ramp, leading to an open-air terrace, featuring a café-restaurant. It offers a relaxing retreat in the heart of the metropolis with a gorgeous panoramic view over the swarming La Rambla Boulevard. CASM, with no permanent exhibition, features about 20 interchanging expositions a year, presenting works of local as well as foreign artists. One of its exhibition halls is set in a former central hall of the monastery, another - one floor up. CASM houses also a cultural centre, holding information about the current events and activities in the city.
