The Centre de Documentació i Museu de les Arts Escèniques, also known as MAE, is a centre for information and research on the performing arts in Catalonia, Spain. The centre has an extensive library, an archive and collections from the Institut del Teatre, which specializes in theatre, dance, opera, zarzuela, music hall, magic and circus performances. Its major collections encompass Catalonia and the Spanish Golden Age.

In Catalonia, it is involved with the Consortium of Academic Libraries of Catalonia.HistoryThe museum's pioneer was theatre and music critic Marc Jesús Bertran. In 1912, Bertran presented a plan to Barcelona City Council and the Mancomunitat and began collecting objects and documents related to the performing arts.The Barcelona Museum of Theatre, Dance and Music was created in 1923. Bertran was its first director, and the first exhibition hall opened to the public in the Palau de les Belles Arts. That year the museum became part of the Escola Catalana d'Art Dramàtic, established as part of the cultural policy of the Barcelona Provincial Council (led by Enric Prat de la Riba, and the origin of the Institut del Teatre).

Sant Pau del Camp is a church and former monastery in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. While the monastery now stands within the El Raval district in central Barcelona, it once stood outside the city ; its rural location gave the church its name.HistoryThere are no sources about the monastery's origins, it is generally thought that it was founded by count Wilfred II of Barcelona, whose funerary inscription was found within the monastery in 1596. The monastery is documented from 977; in 985 it was sacked and destroyed by the Muslim troops of al-Mansur Ibn Abi Aamir.Restorations were begun in 1096, through donations from Geribert Guitard and Rotlendis, and a new monastic community arrived. In 1117, Sant Pau became a priory of the monastery of Sant Cugat. By the 13th, a new cloister, church and monastic quarters were built. In 1377, the monastery consisted of a prior and eight monks, which declined in the 15th century to consist of three monks. An initial monastic meeting for the Terragona province occurred in 1577 and such meetings would continue from 1594 to 1835.The monks were removed upon the secularization of monasteries by the Spanish government in 1835.It was declared National Monument in 1879.ArchitectureThe Romanesque monastery has a small cloister, built in the 13th century. It features lobular arcades supported by double columns, whose capitals are decorated by biblical and daily life scenes, animals, monsters and vegetable motifs. The abbots' house was built in the 13th-14th and early 18th century.
