Night under the stars!<--:-->

 

We dared!
In the middle of August, surrounded by the impressive landscapes of Montsec, we find ourselves in Cal Soldat, an ideal setting to discover the universe through the powerful astronomical telescope and the good work of the experts Kike and Xavier de Celistia.

In both events, the atmosphere from the reception with a glass of cava, the visit to the Espai Museum and a surprise dinner, has been formidable.
When we go to the stage and they transport us to the Cosmic Ocean, marking with a powerful laser, what we are going to contemplate, each one of the attendees, emotion invades us.

Attendees as the lights go out and feel the Universe and the night breeze, it is a pleasure.
The exhibition and questions generates in the dark a cultural space with a lot of attraction for Astronomy.
The phrase… ..We are stardust… .is one of the answers to the immensity of the Universe.
The farewell is exciting and with the challenge of repeating these meetings.
Thank the attendees and the people who have supported this challenge.


Thank you so much.

Visit the Museum

 

We invite you to discover events that occurred in Cal Soldat and its surroundings.
Years ago, Cal Soldat was abandoned, with difficult access, so when arriving and finding so many objects, it was decided to save them and learn the history of a Mur Castle, the Collegiate Church of Santa María and Cal Soldat.

And along with a restoration process, hours of listening to the stories lived by families and historians.

Today we know:
-The life of the families that inhabited Cal Soldat and their emigration to La Pampa (Argentina).
-To the Lord of War, Arnau Mir de Tost and his legacy in Mur.
-As Mur’s Romanesque paintings are in Boston, saving this cultural heritage.
-How one passes in a short time from ambruna to the greatest wealth of Pallars.
-The best Cabaret you can imagine.
-Wine and brandy, two essential products to understand the territory.

And more to discover.

Listening to these stories and letting your brain rest, you may come up with brilliant ideas that you already had, but you lacked some disconnection time.
It will be a pleasure to serve you and share the challenges of the evolution of peoples and regions.

Romanesque Route

 

Romanesque buildings and paintings have the sobriety and mystery that so much attraction trigger.

One of the best collections of Romanesque art in Europe is in the MNAC (Barcelona) and the Mur Collegiate Church is the protagonist of saving the Catalan Romanesque.

The monumental buildings of MUR, with its Castle and Collegiate is a good starting point to start the Romanesque Route

Why?

DO YOU WANT TO LIVE A CULTURAL EXPERIENCE ?

In “CalSoldat”,”you will find your house to come with the family and friends.

In meeting all together, we will inform you of features of Mur’s history, and then we can visit these two historic buildings.

And then the talk:

How did the paintings of “St. Mary's Church” get to the Fine Arts of Boston museum?

Who was and why is so important Luis Plandiura ?

What did Pablo Picasso see in the Romanesque paintings?

BE PART OF THIS GREAT STORY, COME TO CAL SOLDAT!

If you can have a few more days, we organize the route to different Romanesque churches of Pallars.
