Vil·la Casals, the house that cellist Pau Casal had built in the waterfront district of Sant Salvador, three kilometers from the Catalan town of El Vendrell, where he was born, now houses the Museu Pau Casals. The house was initially conceived as a small summer home which, over the years and after several renovations, became a noteworthy building, with a harmonious garden that had a concert hall next to it along with a few rooms to show off his art collection. The museum was updated in 2001 with a modern collection showing the splendor of the house and how Casals developed as a man, musician and peace advocate.
In addition to its temporary exhibitions, shop and restaurant, the museum also organises educational, muscial and family activities.
