Two museums in one morning
The journey starts at the Colònia Lacambra, in the municipal district of Les Masies de Voltregà. There you’ll discover the Copper Museum. It’s on the premises of La Farga, a modernista building from the early 20th century. It’s a cultural centre that illustrates, using different resources, La Farga’s knowledge, use and application of copper throughout history at an industrial, economic and environmental level. After the visit, you’ll head to Manlleu to discover the Museu del Ter. It opened 15 years ago with the objective of highlighting both the cultural heritage linked to the history of industrialisation and the natural heritage of the Ter River. One of the most emblematic elements preserved is a turbine from 1860 and that today can still be operated and, like a century and half ago, activate the system of drive shafts and set the spinning machines in motion.
