Cultural April, Programme of Activities at the Foundation

On the occasion of the book "Muñoz Ramonet, retrato de un hombre sin imagen [Muñoz Ramonet, portrait of a man without image]" being published, the Foundation will open the doors of the main house with a programme of activities designed to showcase the work being carried out since the garden was opened to the general public. Activities have limited places, please register by following the below link:

The book’s presentation, the conference and the concert will take place in the main house, enabling visitors to enjoy this emblematic space that had been closed to the general public until now. Given the characteristics of the space, the seating capacity will be limited, but we are confident that the house will be re-opened for visits in the near future.?
