Culture and museums

Calella’s heritage is very interesting at a cultural level: there are a variety of different themed museums so you can discover all the secrets of the culture and history of this beautiful city.

Interpretation centre of the Calella's Lighthouse

The Calella lighthouse is a symbol of this Maresme municipality. Built in the mid-19th century where a watchtower used to protect the coast from pirate attacks, it is a building steeped in history that has also been able to adapt to modern times by hosting the Center d'Interpretació del Far de Calella (Interpretation Center of the Lighthouse of Calella).

The space occupied by the center is dedicated to showing and explaining to the public the communication tasks that are carried out in the lighthouse, whether they are maritime, to guide the boats, or also terrestrial, through optical telegraphy. It is a space to understand how these constructions have evolved and the work that has been carried out throughout history, through a modern museum project that includes interactive panels, audiovisuals and participation games aimed at children.

April to June and October: Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

July, August and September: Tuesday to Sunday and public holidays from 5pm to 9pm

Closed from November to March.

Tourism Museum

The Tourism Museum is a unique establishment at a world level, focusing on the cultural and economic impact of world tourism. A visit to the museum is like taking a walk through the history of tourism, from the experience of the first travellers and explorers to the present state of tourism. In addition, through the tour of the different spaces, visitors take part in an emotional approach to everything the trip represents concerning the discovery of new ways of doing things and thinking and the treasures offered by travel. Come and experience it!

Picasso at the Maresme, at the Palau Foundation

The Picasso Room of the Fundació Palau permanently exhibits a highly varied collection of Picasso's works, from the painter's beginnings in La Llotja (Barcelona’s School of Fine Arts) until the last years of his life. It is undoubtedly the most valuable part of the Foundation, since Picasso is, according to Palau, “the greatest creator of all time.”
