In 2003 the Museum of the Mediterranean was opened in Torroella, in an attempt to become an area for knowledge, reflection and research for the problems and worries that affect citizens in the 21th century. A place where music is the main focus of a discourse in which natural sounds and human sounds are used as a pretext to show the reality of the land and the people who live there.
The Museum of the Mediterranean opened its doors to discovering more about people living along the Mediterranean, starting with Montgrí, the Baix Ter plain and the Medes islands. This region has been shaped by a long history of exchanges between different cultures along the Mediterranean with a shared past, present and future.
It is a participatory experience for young and old that invites you to smell the aromas of the Mediterranean, hear the sounds and music from the region, touch the history and watch a video that shows how the Mediterranean is today.
