A museum without walls
The MOLL (Open Museum of Lloret) is an imaginary network that enables the discovery of several places of historical, cultural and natural interest. It’s an open space without walls which encompasses various sites across the local area, enabling visitors to explore the town’s heritage. The idea of an open, outdoor museum is to facilitate direct contact with heritage, enabling visitors to feel part of it rather than mere observers. Visitors are not alone. This website serves as a tool for setting off on this adventure. Furthermore, the visitor attractions are equipped with fully accessible panels that offer complementary information.
The entrance to the Open Museum
The discovery begins at the Maritime Museum, which together with the Tourist Office, is the welcome point to the Open Museum of Lloret. All sorts of useful information on the Open Museum are available here. The building in which the museum is housed is known as Can Garriga, since it once belonged to the Garriga family. The origins of this house are directly related to the historical period of maritime trading with the Americas in the 19th century. Enric Garriga i Mataró, a native of Lloret de Mar, headed to Cuba in 1860. There he amassed a great fortune and commissioned the architect Fèlix de Azúa to build his new residence in Lloret. Fèlix de Azúa became a well-known architect throughout Spain thanks to his participation in the remodelling of Plaça d’Espanya in Barcelona in preparation for the 1929 World’s Fair. The Town Hall was also built in 1872. The superb location of this building on Passeig Verdaguer and the fact that it was built during such an important historical period for the town make it the ideal gateway to the Open Museum of Lloret.
