Artistic elements that were saved from the church of Santa Eulàlia de Mèrida, demolished in 1936

The exhibition presents 19 oil paintings on wood panels and 11 architectural elements in stone that provide a precise view of the art in our country at that time.

It also includes 19 Renaissance and Baroque panels belonging to at least three different altarpieces: Sant Roc, All Souls and All Saints, so they were part of different altarpieces located in the chapels devoted to worship in the parish church of Santa Eulalia de Merida, which was consecrated in 1600 and destroyed in 1936.

The exhibition devotes a room to each of the three restored altarpieces, with information on each one and on the paintings they included, and the keys to interpreting the work. It also provides general information on the city of L’Hospitalet at that time, and the church that hosted the altarpieces and dealt with the restoration process.

A number of architectural and sculptural elements from the old church have been integrated in the permanent exhibition, distributed in the aisles. These elements were saved at the time of the demolition by the decisive action of individuals linked to the Town Hall, and they can now be presented with modern criteria in L’Harmonia building.
