Frederic Marès Museum

Museu Frederic Marès

The Museu Frederic Marès is a unique collector's museum housing the collections gathered by its founder, the sculptor Frederic Marès (1893-1991), who donated to them to form part of Barcelona's heritage in 1946. Two years later, the museum was opened, housed in a part of the old Palace of the Counts of Barcelona, in the heart of the Gothic Quarter, which still retains its patio.
