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

Past, Present, and Future of Cal Soldat

 

This photography is part of a collection of 41 protagonists in the book Mírame España, sponsored by Accenture and edited by E. Planet.

Accenture invited Morgana, David and Jaime’s team in order to make a portrait of today’s Spain with their particular vision.

Each photography, the authors tell us, contains details reflecting experiences and, among them and above all, the new female protagonist that enriches society stands out.

 

It is easy to imagine how the enclave and the small houses that make up Cal Soldat were revealed before Rosa’s eyes as the fog dissipated. Thus, she also met the former owner, Isabel, who emerged from the same haze carrying a little girl by the hand, when, by chance, her passion for Romanesque art led her to the nearby castle of Mur.
Rosa is the soul of Cal Soldat. Nestled in a spectacular setting, it is a dream that, with the support of Alejandro, has come true over many years of effort. She transformed the small village of yesteryear into the cottage that is has now become, she faithfully reconstructed the spaces and kept a multitude of objects that Rosa has discovered and recovered, so that her guests feel that it is through them the small village tells them its story.

SPAIN LOOK ME, is a tribute to people who with their efforts, dreams and realities encourage us to believe in ourselves.
