Façade of the Cau Ferrat Museum.

Welcome to Cau Ferrat Museum, the former house and studio of painter, dramatist and collector Santiago Rusiñol. Rusiñol came to Sitges in October 1891 to spend a few months here. In the summer of 1893 he bought a fishing cottage and asked his friend the architect Francesc Rogent to design a space that would serve as both his home and studio. The following year he bought the house next door and again it was Rogent who designed the space as we see it today.

Rusiñol brought his art collection from his Barcelona studio to exhibit it in this house. When he died in 1931, aged seventy, the town of Sitges inherited the house and collections.

The house has two floors, each with own specific purpose. The ground floor has maintained the characteristics of vernacular architecture, while the diaphanous first floor, in the neo-Gothic modernista style, houses the collections.
