Note

These two cultural centres occupy what was left of the old Palace of Agriculture, which was built on Montjuïc for the 1929 International Exposition. In 1983, the then councillor for culture, Maria Aurèlia Capmany, and the mayor Pasqual Maragall were responsible for turning the old Flower Market into a municipal theatre. Meanwhile, the Lliure de Gràcia Theatre outgrew its headquarters and needed a new home. After the proposed redevelopment of the former Plaça de Toros de les Arenes bullring was rejected, the Palace of Agriculture was the next offer, and it has been there since 2001.
