Sitgestiu Cultural 2015

Monday 29 June 2015 - 13:00

Sitgestiu Cultural at Museums reaches adulthood! For such a merry celebration, we prepared an attractive program that, as a new feature this year, adds the opportunity to see the Cau Ferrat and Maricel Museums. Both museums were reopened last winter and are completely refurbished.

The beautiful spaces of museums and the excellence of art collections are a plus to cultural and musical activities held in the facilities. Therefore, we will offer a real treat for the senses; "aesthetic pleasure for your eyes and poetry for your life" which, since the years of Modernism, has always been the main offer of our museums during the summer.

See you there!
