Visit the Museu Episcopal of Vic

Museu Episcopal de Vic (Osona). Juny de 2020

Located next to the Cathedral of Vic, the Episcopal Museum of Vic has magnificent facilities, where some 29,000 pieces of Catalan Romanesque and Gothic painting and sculpture are exhibited, along with outstanding archeological collections, goldsmithing, forging, glass, ceramics, industrial and decorative arts, weaving and liturgical clothing, among many others. Among his masterpieces, the following stand out: the Majesty of Santa Maria de Lluçà, the Baldaquí de Ribes or the Descent of Erill la Vall, dating from the 12th century.

The Museum was inaugurated by Bishop Josep Morgades i Gili on July 7, 1891. Morgades collected the efforts made by a group of intellectuals and clergymen from Vic during the Renaissance with the aim of recover the Catalan artistic heritage. Throughout its more than 120-year history, the Museum has consolidated its mission to preserve, study, exhibit and disseminate its funds of exceptional value.

In addition to its permanent collections, the Museu Episcopal de Vic also hosts a wide range of temporary exhibitions, thanks to its collaboration in research projects with universities and scientific institutions. In addition, at the MEV you can enjoy conferences, guided tours, themed tours, workshops, courses and activities for all audiences.
