VIC EPISCOPAL MUSEUM
The Episcopal Museum was inaugurated in 1891 and for more than a hundred years it has continued its mission to preserve, study, display and disseminate its collections of exceptional value.
A magnificent collection of masterpieces of Romanesque and Catalan Gothic painting and sculpture, along with outstanding collections of archeology, goldsmithing, weaving, wrought iron, glass and ceramics. A fund of exceptional value made up of more than 29,000 pieces.
Vic preserves an important monumental and historical complex that reaches from Roman times to the present day. The oldest monument is the Roman temple but, without a doubt, the most outstanding is its Cathedral.
Consecrated to San Pedro, it was the center around which the town center was developed at the end of the 9th century, Vicus Ausonae, from which the name Vic comes. We also highlight in Vic the theater / performing arts center of La Atlàntida with an extensive cultural program.
In Sant Pere de Torelló and throughout the Ges Valley, the wood-turning industry has been, and still is, an economic activity of great importance. The manufacture of spinning tops, bowling pins and other toys, bars or knobs and other pieces for furniture have brought wealth to the area, making the noble boxwood serve very often.
In this small new museum you will find manufactured pieces, machinery and stories from this flat of local history. And take the opportunity to stroll through the historic center of this industrial town in Alto Ter.
