La Model

Historic Building in L'Eixample

Over 100 years old, this imposing prison finally closed its doors to inmates in 2017, but has now reopened for tours and exhibitions. The entrance patio is open during the week, but 1½-hour tours of the interior (in Catalan or Spanish only) – during which you'll see the exercise yard, cells and control room – are only available on Fridays and Saturdays.
