Summer nights at the Casa Rocamora

Back

Visits. Come and visit the Casa Rocamora’s garden on Thursday nights in the summer, with a glass of wine in hand.

The Casa Rocamora was the residence of the collector and patron, Manuel Rocamora (1892-1976). Thanks to his donation of more than 4,000 items of clothing to Barcelona City Council, the Museo de Indumentaria Colección Rocamora was established in 1969.

The house you’ll be visiting is a mansion dating back to the reign of Isabel II of Spain and is located in the El Putxet neighbourhood. It has retained its original decoration and collections of paintings, sculptures, Alcora ceramics, figurehead and advertising slogans

The hall

It was here that Manuel Rocamora would receive his visitors. He had visits every day, always connected to the world of culture and intellectuals. It is practically the same today as it was during his life. We can see part of his collection of figureheads and works by Modest Urgell, Ramon Martí Alsina...

The garden

Manuel Rocamora often went out to pain in the garden, which used to reach Carrer Pàdua. During the period when Porcioles was the city’s mayor, Rocamora gave up part of his garden so Ronda General Mitre could be constructed, thereby losing of its access points.

The library

He spent a large part of his time to reading and writing. An important collection of books on fashion and volumes of Spanish legislation on clothes and fabrics is conserved in the library. You can also see the original furniture made by Pablo Picasso for the El 4 Gats tavern.
