The Miro Foundation (Fundacio Joan Miro) commemorates the life and work of Joan Miro, the Catalan Surrealist artist. Designed by the architect Josep Luis Sert – a good friend of Miro - the huge collection is housed in a Mediterranean style building, including roof terraces, gardens, and spacious courtyards. Over 14,000 examples of Miro’s paintings, sculptures and ceramics are displayed here, alongside the work of other contemporary artists. A special space – Espai 13 – is dedicated to promoting the work of young experimental artists.
