Museu de la Mediterrània

Museum, Exhibition centre
Museum dedicated to the study of the territory which borders the Mediterranean sea from a human and geographical perspective. It regularly organises exhibitions, concerts, conferences and guided tours.

Starting with the territories of the Montgrí mountains, the Baix Ter plain and the Medes Islands, the Museu de la Mediterrània shows the populated and geographical areas that border the Mediterranean Sea. This museum aims to broaden visitors' knowledge of the area and the people who have inhabited it, their customs and traditions.

It is located in the old Can Quintana manor, historically one of the most emblematic mansions in the town of Torroella de Montgrí. The museum's activity is oriented toward the public at large. A large variety of services and cultural events are included, especially the documentation centre and archive, exhibition programmes, concerts and conferences, and planned visits with running commentaries.

With music as the main theme and as the paradigmatic element of the various cultures that are represented here, the first floor of the building displays the permanent collection and is the central theme of the museum. Visitors can discover the great cultural and natural diversity that has defined the area around this sea throughout its history.

The museum also holds temporary displays related to its theme. These displays can be found in space 1 on the ground floor of the building and in space 2 on the second floor.

Other activities include the biannual call for Joan Torró i Cabratosa grants for the study of the territories that gave rise to this museum, and the Ernest Lluch Workshop, which is held annually to establish dialogue and debate on cultural exchanges between the peoples of the Mediterranean.
