At the time the Capdella complex was being built, men wore capes and a traditional Catalan cap, the red and black barretina; women wore hoods with their dresses, and shepherds carried bags slung over their shoulders.

A set of items of clothing from the time, consisting of a thick woollen cape as worn to go to mass or for other special occasions, a typical barretina, a grandmother’s hood, clogs and a sarró (a shepherd’s leather pouch for carrying the tools of his trade).

These clothes, which visitors are invited to try on, take us back to the 1910s.

The bag is made of sheep’s hide and was crafted by a shepherd from the village of Capdella. In it there is a cow’s horn of the type that was used to carry juniper oil and other ointments and unguents that they used to treat their animals.
