Our musical heritage comes from way back and we can be truly proud of this rich tradition.
The town has a comprehensive annual programme of musical recitals, concerts and sardana dancing, as well as the prestigious summer International Music Festival.
It is also a town of painters, sculptors, writers and photographers, with a dynamic cultural scene that has attracted several private foundations and art galleries: Vila Casas Foundation, Mascort Foundation, Michael Dunev Art Projects, Atrium Roca Sans and Traç d’Art (L’Estartit), and municipal spaces such as St Anthony’s Chapel in Torroella and the Municipal Exhibition Hall in L’Estartit.
Fairs and festivals have always played a vital role in our local culture.
With time-honoured fairs and festivals, fiestas and street parties, sardana dancing, sea shanty concerts, parades of traditional “giants”, maritime processions, and everything else that gives a town its personality and identifies it with its roots.
Other more innovatory festivals are slowly but surely attracting their own public: Mediterranean Fair, Magic Festical, Beatles Weekend and Medes Islands Pirates and Corsairs.
