The year 2014 will mark the 300th anniversary of the events of 11 September 1714. For this reason, Barcelona City Council is organizing, in cooperation with the Government of Catalonia, a civic commemoration that will help us to rediscover the city of the eighteenth century, to grasp the scope of those events and to understand them in relation to the present situation and our future expectations.

Tricentennial BCN will promote dialogue between the past and present through a program of events that will include exhibitions, debates, seminars, publications, routes, civic celebrations and artistic initiatives that will immerse us in history through reflection, revelation, artistic creation and citizen participation.

The inaugural show AUCA del BORN at the Born Cultural Centre, the new center housed in the Born Market, is performing arts, dynamic, moving show with a series of short, fast simultaneous scenes that,  illustrate life in the Born neighborhood at two historic moments: the year 1700, and 1876, when the market opened.
Don’t miss the chance and get your tickets here for the show which is great way for visiting for the fist time this New Cultural Center inside the antique Barcelona’s market.
