Description

Housed in a neo-Gothic building in the centre of the city dating from the 19th century, the Olot Musuem of Saints shares premises with Art Cristià, a workshop of religious images founded in Olot in 1880 by Joaquim Vayreda, Josep Berga I Boix and Valentí Carrera. Their objective was to provide work for the many students of the Olot Public School of Art.In 2007 the Museum of Saints was born with the main purpose of displaying the long tradition of producing religious images once manufactured by hand.
