Petit Futé's opinion on VILA-MUSEUM PAU CASALS

Plate millesim 2022

It was in 1910 that the famous cellist Pau Casals (1876-1973) built on the promenade on the seafront of Sant Salvador what he considered as a holiday villa. The house then passes through the hands of the architect Antoni Puig i Gairalt, which renovated and enlarged it, adding a splendid music room and a garden. Despite his decision to settle there in full time, the composer, as a convinced democrat, is forced to exile following the arrival of Franco's power. Nevertheless, in concert with his wife, he decided to open his villa and personal heritage to the public by creating the Pau Casals Foundation in 1972. The residence was converted into a museum and opened in 1976, three years after the artist's death. Closed in 1996 for renovations, it opens again in June 2001. Today, you can wander through this unique place, running between the room - the original Casals objects and scores - to the music room and the documentary space. Very large artistic background and some very beautiful audiovisual. A stop in the beautiful garden is also recommended.
