Our municipality boasts a rich and varied cultural life, with music as the most present of all the arts.
Art, music and heritage place Torroella de Montgrí and l’Estartit among the major cultural destinations of Catalonia.
Our musical heritage comes from way back and we can be truly proud of this rich tradition. The town has a comprehensive annual programme of musical recitals, concerts and sardana dancing, as well as the prestigious summer International Music Festival.
It is also a town of painters, sculptors, writers and photographers, with a dynamic cultural scene that has attracted several private foundations and art galleries: Vila Casas Foundation, Mascort Foundation, Michael Dunev Art Projects, Atrium Roca Sans and Traç d’Art (L’Estartit), and municipal spaces such as St Anthony’s Chapel in Torroella and the Municipal Exhibition Hall in L’Estartit.
