About
The social and physical headquarters of the foundation is located in el El Born (Ciutat Vella) a neighbourhood of Barcelona. Conceived as a meeting point for activities related to the feline world. This is a unique space in the world that all cat lovers should know. Not only you can play with the cats, but the main purpose is to make you fall in love with them... and adopt one. It was designed to be a foster house, the time they stay in the cat house helps their adaptation to live in a house before they find their home. * Our main purpose is to ensure the physical and emotional condition of the cats and that's why we have limited days to visit, very controlled hours and capacity. You can come visit us Wednesday and Thursday afternoon (6pm to 8.30pm), Friday (3.30pm to 8.30 pm) and Saturday all day and enjoy the space and our cats. Come and meet us!

The area
Address
Neighborhood: El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
How to get there
  • Jaume I • 7 min walk
  • Barceloneta • 7 min walk

An amazing place! Completely different from a tourist point of view. And, in the end, you help shelter cats with your visit. At Suara Foundation you can play with them while having a cup of tea/coffee. It is super relaxing! Usually there are 8 cats in there, so, per visit only 8 people at the same time.
A must go if you visit Barcelona - El Born.

What a great concept - quirky store downstairs selling cat themed clothes etc to fund cat rescue, with option to make a donation in return for socialising with the cats who are looking for homes upstairs. We visited as a family - our kids are cat crazy and were missing our cats whilst away on holiday - this was great therapy for home sickness! The cats played and cuddled us - much to the delight of our kids. The merchandise downstairs is not cheap - fair enough, as it funds the much needed charitable work. We loved it here

Thank you for taking some time to leave us your review. Your feedback is really important to us. I'm very happy to know all your family enjoyed the visit to our Cat House! The products downstairs at Suara Store are all made with organic cotton, fair-trade and the benefits goes to our foundation. It's very important to us to respect the environment (that's the reason why all products are made of organic materials) and people (guarantee of non child labor). For that reason our prices are a bit more expensive comparing to some fast-fashion shops. One again, thank you so much for your visit and we hope to see you next time you are in Barcelona!

I had such a wonderful visit here. Seeing all the unique handmade items they sell to support the welfare work they are doing for Barcelona's homeless cats is such a unique and extraordinary concept. All the clothing was very high quality and the man we spoke with was incredibly kind and helpful. We wanted to visit the cats, but at the time they were not open in the cat area. I will be following Suara on social media and doing my best to spread the word and continue supporting their work. I did purchase a fantastic zip up hoodie though there was endless selection of types of clothing (and sizes) to choose from.

The house is fantastic for any cat lover! You must visit when it's open because it's a lovely space full of many beautiful cats to love! The people who run the place are lovely and super nice!

The Suara Foundation Cat House can be found on the second floor, above the Suara Store. The store has many cat related merchandise related that go towards proceeds to help fund the house, including electronic music.

The store is born out of the record label Suara Records, from the DJ Coyu. He's such a sweet a generous human and also has great staff that works with him to give better lives to these wonderful cats.

They sell products inspired by cats and music. The funds for these are put towards conservation efforts of felines in Barcelona. Sadly, that effort is not well understood in Spain, so their funding is limited.

They have a space upstairs, where for a small donation, you can hang out with, pet, and play with the residents. Some are up for adoption, some are permanent residents of Suara.

There are a lot cool clothes (mostly humorous) for people that like cats, buy something, spend some time with the cats, they put the money to good use and care about managing the population humanely.

If you are in Barcelona, you should drop in at Suara. This foundation helps stray cats in need, providing them with treatment and rehoming. The cats are upstairs in a beautifully furnished room with a lot of space and toys for them, and with adequate regulations to prevent them from getting distressed. You can also have some tea or coffee while you're there. And for those who don't want to pat the cats but just support the cause, they sell cute and cheesy tees and other merch downstairs.

The Suara Foundation/store has been the most unique and enjoyable experience of our trip to Barcelona. What they do for the cats of Barcelona is incredible. We were made to feel very welcome and given the whole story of the foundation and its aims. The staff are super friendly and the cats even more so. We stayed for half an hour but it only felt like 5 minutes. Each cat has its own unique personality and they are so much fun to play with. We will definitely be coming back next time we are in Barcelona. And we even got to meet Coyu!
