This guitar by Francisco Pagés, who set up shop in Havana (Cuba), dates from 1837. It belonged to Barcelona singer Victòria dels Àngels (1923 -2005). It represents a private and personal aspect of her musical career, and she would sing and play this guitar with her friends and family. It has been restored to a playable state by Igualada luthier Jaume Bosser.
