The Jacint Verdaguer House-Museum A homage to the poet
T
Jacint Verdaguer, author of L'Atlàntida and Canigó, and one of the great architects of the revival of Catalan as a literary language, lived part of his childhood in the current Verdaguer House-Museum in Folgueroles. Opened in 1967, it is one of the oldest literary museums in Catalonia.

The house is from the 17th century and is divided into ground floor (originally intended for the agricultural tools), first floor, attic and a courtyard at the rear. It is located at 7, Carrer Major in Folgueroles, next to Cal Doctor (no. 9). When the young Verdaguer lived there, the two houses formed a single building.

The project dates back to the early 20th century, when the idea arose of creating a museum in Folgueroles dedicated to the memory of Verdaguer. The collection - brought together by the Association Amics de Verdaguer (Friends of Verdaguer Association) with the advice of Eduard Junyent and Josep M. Garrut (curators of the MEV - Epsicopal Museum of Vic, and the MHCB - Barcelona City History Museum, respectively) - is arranged into three sections: biographical, with items that belonged to the poet; ethnographical, with various objects of everyday life (on the first floor, the domestic rooms of a mid-19th century house have been preserved); and the artistic, with pieces by artists such as Duran fields, Pahissa and Perejaume. Preserved in the library, are some 800 items among which are books, periodicals, graphical, sound and audiovisual materials.
