The Chocolate Museum Barcelona
The Chocolate Museum was set up in the year 2000 as an initiative of Barcelona’s Confectioners’ Guild; the museum is placed in a building of great historic importance: the former Convent of Sant Agustí in Barcelona.
The aim of the foundation is to broadcast the culture of chocolate and its associations with Barcelona and Catalonia. The 600 m2 exhibition space of the Museu de la Xocolata traces the origins of chocolate, its arrival in Europe, and its semi-mythical status. Visitors can find out its medical and aphrodisiac properties, the symbolic, the cultural, the economic significance and nutritional value. Chocolate links tradition with modernity and it still plays a significant role in our everyday life.
