House of Pau Casals

Pau Casals (1876-1973) was and is one of the greatest cellists of all time. Beyond music, he became a tireless defender of peace and freedom of the people, in an era shaken by wars and oppression. The house where Pau Casals was born preserves the atmosphere of a house of a very humble family from the end of the 19th Century. On the ground floor of the house you can follow Pau Casals’ childhood related to the town through photographs and two very significant musical instruments that marked the beginning of this maestro’s career: the “carbasseta” (a small cello made from a gourd) and the “gralla” (traditional Catalan double reed instrument). A staircase next to the narrow entrance door leads to the two floors that the Casals family occupied.

Nearby places of interest related to Pau Casals: parish church and baroque organ; El Vendrell cemetery; the Pau Casals School of Music Auditorium; Museum Villa Casals; Pau Casals Auditorium and Sant Salvador hermitage.

Services: guided tours; Pau Casals Route with organ listening; shop.

“Fortunately, during my travels to so many foreign countries […] I have never forgotten about the child of El Vendrell”
