On the occasion of the European Heritage Days, the Martorell Studies Center invites us to make one virtual visit to the Bujons Pharmacy, through the entity’s website. From the interface of this visit you can also access the virtual visits to the archaeological sites of Santa Margarida and Sant Genís de Rocafort.
The vice-president of the CEM, Alfred Mauri, explains that “we have made a first version of a virtual visit to the Bujons Pharmacy that refers to the immediate external environment and allows you to enter the first part of the facility. You will be able to recognize the most interesting elements that you would see if you actually went into it. You can also consult information on the counters or on the shelves ”.
Alfred Mauri, vicepresident del CEM
The activity “is part of the set of virtual visits we started on the sites of Santa Margarida and Sant Genís de Rocafort.” The CEM wants to “update and enrich them, little by little, using digital technologies and creating a repository with the reproduction of objects that constitute a virtual museum of elements of archaeological heritage of Martorell.”
Alfred Mauri, vicepresident del CEM
The facility opened its doors in 1842 and was in operation until 1957, when it was closed without any alteration of its condition. The last owners, Josep Anton Bujons and Maria Vivó, wanted the Martorell Studies Center to take charge of the conservation of this heritage, which in addition to the pharmacy includes an important archival and bibliographic collection with documents and books ranging from from the late seventeenth century to the middle of the twentieth century. Since 1989 it has been the headquarters of the entity. The space of the old shop and back room were restored in 1990 by the School-Workshop of the City Council of Martorell taking special care to recover the original image.
Subsequently, the CEM took charge of the restoration and rehabilitation of the various rooms on the ground floor. The poor condition of the roof caused the building to partially collapse in 2003, which led to its closure. In April 2016, once the restoration works carried out by the current owner of Martorell City Council were completed, the space was restored as the headquarters of the CEM and a revitalization space for the Martorell Museums.
The European Heritage Days were held on 8, 9 and 10 October on the initiative of the Council of Europe and the European Commission, which has been taking place, uninterruptedly in Catalonia, since 1991. They are considered the most important participatory activity of ‘Europe in relation to cultural heritage. This year, the festival of cultural heritage is more special than ever, as it celebrates 30 years of organizing the European Heritage Days in Catalonia.
