Discover the Empordà’s Museum!

The Empordà’s Museum, located in Figueres, proposes you a route through the history of empordanian art in the Catalan artistic panorama. You will be able to see a sample of archaeological local discoveries, since the Neolithic until the Romanization, and you will discover works of the Mediaeval and Modern Period. On this period we highlight the capitals of the monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes (s. XI – XII) and the deposits of baroque painting which come from the Prado Museum. Through works of Alsina, Sorolla, Casas, Sunyer, Mir, Nonell, Gargallo, Marés and Casanovas, among others, the path of the Catalan Art of the 19th century is presented, which arrives until the first avant-gardes, represented by Cuixart, Ponç and Tàpies, who close this path, the realistic landscape, the surrealism, the abstraction, the new figure and the last trends of artists as Blanquet, Dalí, Planells, Reig, Sibecas, Vallès, Santos Torroella…

The collection of the Empordà’s Museum dates from the end of 19th century and it mostly comes from donations and bequeaths of distinguished people. At the same time, the EM organises exhibitions, seminars, concerts, group visits and didactic activities addressed to the research and diffusion of the local and regional cultural heritage and to the experimentation of the emergent artistic creation.
