The exhibition is mainly narrated by the artwork that artist Pere Ginard has specialy created for the occasion. Twelve large-format images which recreate events, characters and scenes using a very personal technique, which combines engraving, photography or drawing to configure a whole from a very original point of view. The illustrations are accompanied by short informative texts written by the historian Dani Cortijo and that, through chapters, report the events, from the arrival of the Castilian troops to the victory of the Catalan hosts.
