What to expect

Casa Rocamora is an Elizabethan mansion located in the Putxet district, which was the home where Manuel Rocamora i Vidal (1892-1976), the great clothing collector, once lived. From a young age he was drawn to collecting, specialising in ancient clothing. He gathered more than four thousand pieces that gave rise to the Textile and Costume Museum of Barcelona, Rocamora Collection, in 1969.

In the 1930’s, he acquired an Elizabethan mansion situated in the Putxet district in which he took up residency. His passion for collecting saw him gather collections of Alcora ceramics, paintings, drawings and sculptures from the 19th and 20th centuries (Ramón Casas, Manolo Hugué, Vallmitjana...) which can still be found today in the place where he used to reside.

During the visit you will be able to see the house where Manuel Rocamora lived, his art collections and the garden.
