Paris, France

Maison Europeene de la Photographie, Ville de Paris

A secret in the city… In addition to a plethora of mind-altering exhibits, MEP‘s cultural and educational service offers a special visit behind the scenes on three Wednesdays a month, providing the opportunity to discover the “Maison” in three stages:


  • History of the building. The Hôtel Hénault de Cantobre was built in 1706 and bears the name of its first owner, the tax collector René Jean Rémy Hénault de Cantobre. The façades overlooking the street, the ironwork and the central staircase are listed features representative of neo-classical architecture. The building has belonged to the City of Paris since 1914. For the MEP project, the conversion and extension of the building were entrusted to the Yves Lion architecture firm.
  • The media library collection. The Roméo Martinez library and video library is a consultation facility focusing on photography as a form of artistic expression. Its specialization and the number of documents available (24,000 books, 1,400 periodicals, 800 films) make it the only one of its kind in the world. It offers researchers and lovers of photography a repository of international audiovisual publishing devoted to photographers.
  • The Restoration and Conservation Workshops (ARCP). Situated in the same building as the MEP, this is the first public service specializing in the conservation of photographic materials. Its main purpose is to deploy a implement a preservation policy for the municipal photographic heritage by carrying out expert evaluations leading to conservation and restoration work.

Visits will begin again in October 2011, to coincide with the next exhibition season.

Barcelona, Spain

El Jardi Barcelona | Terraza y Bar de Tapas

Hidden in the gothic gardens of the old Hospital Santa Creu you find El Jardi, tapas bar. Once inside the garden, surrounded by the thick stone walls, the sound of the city disappears.
El Jardi is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine and some tapas. Our proximity to the Bouqeria market allows us to receive fresh products twice a day. The menu and our dishes changes with the seasons and the availability of fresh products. The kitchen is open all day and we have terraces both in the sun and the shade.

El Jardi is located in the city centre of Barcelona, only ten minutes walking from Plaza Catalunya and five minutes from MACBA (the Contemporary Art Museum).
