Chocolate Museum

The Art of Chocolate

Chocolate Louis Armstrong

Located in the Antic Couvent de Sant Agusti, the Museu de la Xocolata, as it's known in Catalan, was set up by Barcelona's pastry chefs' guild and is dedicated to the history, art and preparation of chocolate. State-of-the-art, multilingual exhibitions will take you through all aspects of the cocoa bean, from its discovery in South America to the mona, the special Catalan Easter cake that has evolved into an edible work of art.

Trust the Barcelonans to make everyone else's chocolate Easter bunnies seem ho hum. The museum is full of masterpieces moulded and sculpted by the city's chocolatiers into everything from the Sagrada Família to Snowflake, Barcelona's famous albino gorilla. Even Woody Allen, a local hero ever since the filming of Vicky Cristina Barcelona, gets the chocolate treatment. And naturally there's a gift shop.
