Meet the famous Catalan characters

Meet the famous Catalan characters

Throughout its history, Catalonia has seen the birth and forging of the figure of historical figures and great intellectuals, wise men and women who have stood out in fields as diverse as literature, painting, music, architecture, medicine, among many others.

His legacy still lives on among us, the buildings of our cities, at the bottom of libraries and through museums and centers that recover his life and work to put it in value and pay tribute there. Many of them, misunderstood in their time to go a step beyond the canons and norms of the time, disappeared without recognition.

In this section we want to help you understand and discover how the work and biography of these people, men and women turned into celebrities, are linked to Catalonia through routes, museums, activities that show you the spaces that inspire them, where they grew up, or they lived and built their refuge of creation.
