Can Mario Museum

Can Mario Museum is the Fundació Vila Casas Museum of Contemporary Sculpture in Palafrugell[1] (Costa Brava). It was opened in 2004. It has around 220 works on show dating from the 1960s to the present day by a wide range of artists born or living in Catalonia. Temporary exhibitions are also held every year.[2][3][4][5][6]

Temporary exhibitions are organised every year. Can Mario was a cork factory dating from the early 20th century and was one of the buildings of the Miquel & Vincke cork company. Today it is a place for contemplating art situated in the Plaça de Can Mario, where we can also find a modernista water tower[7] and the Cork Museum.[8][9][10]
