MACBA

Barcelona - Cataluña, Spain

Skateboarding

Street

The Museum for Contemporary Art in Barcelona was opened in 1995 along with the Plaça dels Àngels, or what is better known as MACBA in the world of skateboarding. This place wasn't a skate zone from day one, but little by little it became the epicentre of skateboarding in Barcelona and one of the most famous skate meccas in the world due to its appearance in international videos and constant visits by skaters from all over the world. The famous long smooth granite ledge is the main element in the centre of the spot, along with many more different sized ledges, a good set of 5 stairs and the newly renovated 3 tier, formerly known as 'The Big 4', all on a more than perfect floor.

MACBA Skate Barcelona

At certain times of the day, MACBA can get crazy with loads of skaters and pedestrians trying to move about without tripping over each other, especially at the weekends during the summer when the weather is good. At night it transforms into a place to chill out where the atmosphere is relaxed and you can buy cheap cold beers.

Some of the ledges are worn and rounded due to so much use but in general everything is very good. You can skate more comfortably on Tuesdays and Sundays at the higher part near the entrance as the museum is closed. Make sure you are mindful about where you leave your bag. The police often allow you to skate there and the locals are hospitable, many of them are from different parts of the world.
