Life in the Town Interpretation Centre

From life in country farms to life in the town

This exhibition shows two sides to life in Masdenverge: in the farmhouses and in the village.

This exhibition shows two sides to life in Masdenverge: in the farmhouses and in the village.

The exhibition depicts life in Masdenverge in two parts. The first is an itinerary through its municipal district. Here we may contemplate the elements that make up its landscape and environment, including the crop fields with olives, carobs and almonds, and its humid region (the Foia de Solsó), with its irrigated fields, channels and wells. At the same time, it highlights the traditional activities related with the farmhouses that were the seed of the village, and shows their evolution over time. It also makes clear the different functions that these farmhouses carry out: agricultural centre, meeting place or for celebrations, to hear mass, to take classes, etc.

The second part looks at how the urban part formed, and how its consolidation has led to the decline of life in the farmhouses, which have been preserved for over a century. It also points out how the history and community have created a way of life in the village, with reference to the continuous changes of the present day.
