Overview
More
The Maricel Museum exhibits a complete artistic route from the tenth century to realism and figuration during the first half of the twentieth century, passing through the art collections of Dr. Jesus Perez Rosales and the Collection of Sitges, with works of great quality. The museum exhibition integrates multiple languages, techniques and artistic media in order to achieve a maximum consistency in the chronological sequence of the development of the arts. The museum included works from the collection of Dr. Jesus Perez-Rosales that never had been exhibited in public, acquisitions by the Sitges Heritage Association since 2012 (Ramon Casas, Miquel Utrillo, Arcadi Mas i Fondevila, Artur Carbonell i Augusti Ferrer Pino) ​​and donations from artist’s relatives (Pere Jou and Alfred Sisquella).The museum's own collection was complemented with several works from loans and deposits from art collections of the Government of Catalonia, the Museum of the Provincial Government of Barcelona.

A museum of Catalan art and culture rather directed at the Catalans themselves, A maze of small rooms with many artifacts and curious items, up stairs plenty of detail on the Spanish modernist painters of the period.

You need plenty of time to enjoy this Museu, It was closed for a couple of years for refurbishment and is now better than ever. Not to be missed.
