MUHBA - Museu d'Història de Barcelona - Vil·la Joana

MUHBA - Museu d'Història de Barcelona - Vil·la Joana

The museum is dedicated to the memory of Jacint Verdaguer, one of the leading authors of the Catalan Renaixença period, and occupies two floors of the Vil·la Joana, an 18th-century farmhouse on the Collserola Ridge.

The Museu-Casa Verdaguer is a typical example of a Catalan country house and displays personal objects belonging to the great poet Jacint Verdaguer (1845-1902). These mementoes take us on a journey through the recent history of Catalonia and Barcelona.

The museum comprises two sections: the "sentimental" section, featuring period furniture; and the "literary" section, with an exhibition about Jacint Verdaguer's life and literary career. Highlights include original drawings by Andreu Solà (Ripollet, 1863-1902) for an edition of Dietari d'un Peregrí a Terra Santa (An Account of a Pilgrim to the Holy Land), a drawing by Alexandre de Riquer (Calaf, 1856-Palma de Mallorca, 1920) which frames a musical score by Francesc Alió, Lo Plor de la tórtora (The Weeping of a Turtledove), and a copy of Oda a Barcelona (Ode to Barcelona) signed by Verdaguer. The museum also houses a collection of books about the poet and his works, as well as contemporary publications. It also has a specialised photographic collection.
