The Museu Diocesà de Barcelona
Between the 19th and 20th centuries, the first Spanish diocesan museums were born in Catalonia, with the mission of preserving the tangible and intangible value of all those objects that were in the parishes of the diocese and were no longer used for worship. On the 22nd October 1916, the Barcelona Diocesan Museum was opened on the ground floor of the Conciliar Seminary. Its first director, Rev. Fr. Manuel Trens Ribes, was one of the most influential ecclesiastics of his time. He soon began to think about moving the museum to the Casa de l’Almoina, a transfer that for several reasons did not take effect until 1989, under the direction of Rev. Fr. Josep M. Martí i Bonet. Then, the building was restored, and the Diocesan Museum of Barcelona opened its doors at the Casa de l’Almoina with the exhibition “Millenum. Història i art de l’Església catalana”.
