Cloister of the museum with a neoclassical air

The Manresa County Museum was opened at the end of the 19th century. Since then, it has preserved and disseminated the artistic and historical heritage of Manresa and Bages. It is located in the old Sant Ignasi school, a neoclassical building with a beautiful central cloister.

The visit to the exhibition presents a journey back in time, with objects and works of art dating from the area's first human occupation, 6,000 years ago, until the present day.

The Museum covers the following themes:

  • The imagery of the city: giants and dwarves
  • The formation of the landscape
  • Archaeology in Bages
  • The medieval centuries: the formation of the city, the walls and "Manresian" pottery
  • Ignatius of Loyola in Manresa
  • The Baroque centuries: from the Renaissance to Neoclassicism
  • The Peninsular War; the evolution towards an industrial society
  • 19th and 20th-century art and artists
