The Prat de la Riba house museum keeps alive the memory of the figure of that politician, a crucial piece in politics in the early 20th century. The house, where he was born and where he died, has preserved the atmosphere and the furniture of the period and allows us to enter Prat de la Riba's family and work areas.

 An audiovisual montage accompanies us throughtout the visit to follow his professional career. His writings as a jurist, his work as editor of the magazine La Veu de Catalunya or the exercise of public posts were always addressed to developing his ideas.

Among his outstanding political actions were the promotion of the Commonwealth of Catalonia, of which he was the first president. From that institution he and his associates went ahead with the modernisation of the country, extending the infrastructures and health centres and supporting training and culture.
