The port environment, the memory of the breakwater and the closeness to the sea

If the Saint Petersburg Hermitage occupies an historic palace now used as a museum, the Hermitage Barcelona will be a new museum with the dimensions of an urban palace.

In Hermitage Barcelona, the exhibit design is not limited to choosing and hanging pictures on the wall but to the observation and understanding of these works, so the visitor can put himself in the shoes of these creators.
