Episcopal Museum of Vic

The MEV is one of Europe’s leading museums, housing one of the best collections of Romanesque and Gothic art in the world.

Escultura gòtica - Mare de Déu de Boixadors

The museum was founded in 1891 and has been housed in various venues. Its current home, designed by the architects Federico Correa and Alfonso Milà with made-to-measure spaces for each collection, was officially opened in 2002. The museum is best known for its truly outstanding Gothic and Romanesque sculpture and painting collections. Nevertheless, the collections devoted to archaeology, textiles and liturgical garments, wrought ironwork, and gold and silversmithing are among the finest in Catalonia.
