About Vila Joana in Parc Collserola

Views: 401. Updated: Oct 4, 2021 by: Barcelona Travel Hacks

Vila Joana, an old farmhouse of the Vallvidrera parish, became a summer home in the 19th century and then an educational facility, the Villa Joana Schools, between 1921 and 1973.

Villa Joana was the final home of the writer Jacint Verdaguer. He fell ill and died here on 10th June 1902. On that day, the house became a memorial space for the poet. In 1963, some rooms were turned into the first museum dedicated to him. Today, Villa Joana acts both as a memorial and as a museum house of literature.
