  • Small and beautiful Museum in a chalet donated by the Pujol family. It would need funds for better conservation and lighting,

  • A place full of memory, both in its construction and in what you can visit inside, meeting people with a lot of charisma, who teach you and explain about each section, a place to visit and learn about part of Madryn.
