This temporary exhibition was created with the aim of presenting the works and objects that have entered the collections of the three Sitges museums since 2014. This date marked the reopening of the seafront, Cau Ferrat and Maricel museums. Since then the museums have incorporated 1,382 works, objects and documents, of which a selection of 300 are now on display.
Among the works on display are pieces by Picasso, Isidre Nonell, Ramon Casas, Santiago Rusiñol, Olga Sacharoff and Alonso Cano, as well as one of the largest glass collections in Catalonia, which includes pieces from ancient Egypt to the 18th century.

Get the Guidebook of Barcelona Modernisme Route
The Barcelona Modernisme Route is an itinerary that takes you through the Barcelona of Gaudí, Domènech i Montaner and Puig i Cadafalch, the architects who, together with others, made Barcelona the world capital of Modernisme. This Route enables you to get to know thoroughly impressive palatial residences, amazing houses, the temple that has become a symbol of the city and a huge hospital, but it also includes humbler and more everyday buildings and items such as chemists’, shops, lampposts and benches - modernist works which show that Art Nouveau put down strong roots in Barcelona and today Modernisme is still an art that is alive and part of life in the city.
The Guidebook of Barcelona Modernisme Route can be acquired in our centers of Modernisme.
