pl. Rector Ferrer
The church (1750-1763) is a neo-classical building with a façade a perron in the baroque style. Note the 17C baroque retable by Pau Costa and the monumental painting by El Greco, Christ Carrying the Cross (1605).
This museum includes two sections: natural sciences, La Casal dels Volcans, and old 18C hospice containing a collection of paintings and drawings by Catalan artists (19C and 20C).
Modernist architect Domènech i Montaner rebuilt this unusual building from 1915-1916, keeping the sumptuous 18C interiors and adding the modernist façade.
