Museu de la Pell d'Igualada-Cal Granotes

Museum
Cal Granotes is a former tannery which has been renovated in order to reveal the different pre-industrial methods used in the manufacture of tannery products.

The former tannery of Cal Granotes is a pre-industrial building located in Rec de Igualada. It has been completely renovated in order to explain the various pre-industrial methods used in the manufacture of tannery products. It is the only tannery that has been converted into a museum in Catalonia. It started to operate as a tannery around about 1763. The building is made of stone and mortar and still has the original holes. Thick leather used to be tanned here using artisan methods. On the ground floor, or bank, the leather preparation tasks and tanning took place and on the first floor, or clothesline, the leather was dried and finished. Both floors were connected by a hole in the ceiling called a trapa. It currently forms part of the Museu de la Pell d'Igualada.
