After a year of respite due to the pandemic caused by Covid-19, the “Fira de l’Aixada” will be held again in all its splendor. The Seu will take an active part in this long-awaited return for the city with one of its star proposals: theatrical visits.
The guide for this activity will be Berenguer de Montagut, master builder of the basilica of Manresa, who will accompany visitors from the cloister to the first roof of the temple. The architect will transport the attendees 700 years back, when he signed the contract for the construction of the Gothic temple so longed for by the people of Manresa.
During the visit, Montagut will explain how he imagines the great basilica of the heart of Catalonia, the architectural solutions he will apply, the great role it will play in the development of the city and the country.
Timetable and prices
The theatrical visits with Berenguer de Montagut will take place on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 February only in Catalan. A total of 5 visits will be offered each day.
Visiting hours will be: 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 5pm and 6pm.
The price of the visit will be 5 € / person and children under 7 will have free access. The ticket includes the visit of the basilica.
This year tickets can be bought in advance here: https://bit.ly/3IQN2hS and on the same day of the visits in the reception of the Seu of Manresa.
