Honoring Nepal

In addition to the human losses that the earthquake in Nepal and its successive aftershocks have provoked, we have had to include the impact that the cultural heritage of zones, such as those of Kathmandu valley, included in the UNESCO World Heritage site list have suffered. The Museum of World Cultures, in support of the population of Nepal, wishes to highlight the objects of the room 17 about Nepal to acknowledge so many centuries of history and cultural inheritance that now will have to confront a long period of reconstruction.

Casa Nadal

The current Casa Nadal is a residential house with a ground floor and two storeys, the result of the joining of two 14th-century buildings that Jeroni Nadal converted into one as from 1637, and his family owned it until the last third of the 17th century. The structure of the main building corresponds to the common model with central courtyard, façade with tower, originally on the right end, and a gallery supported by columns on the upper floor.

Casa Mora o del Marquès de Llió

Casa Mora was built from four buildings acquired successively by the Codina family between 1537 and 1604. The heirs of Lluís de Queralt, successor of the Codina family, sold the house in 1705 to Josep Francesc de Mora i Catà, the first Marquis of Llió, from which it gets its current name.
