The Capellades Paper Mill Museum is located in an old paper mill, next to "La Bassa", a natural source of water from which, in the 17th century, over 12 million litres of water used to flow. This crystal clear water was distributed via canals to serve the town's 16 paper mills. These mills produced the highest quality deckled paper in Spain, exported to the colonies all over South America and the Philippines.
In this historical context, 50 years ago a group of paper industrialists founded the Museum, thereby saving this highly skilled craft from oblivion, which is so deeply rooted in the culture of Catalonia. Today, the Museum forms part of the Museum of Science and Technology of Catalonia and is considered to be one of the most important paper museums in the world.
In recent years, the different venues available for cultural, social and business events have been expanded and reconditioned. One added value in holding any event here is the chance for an exclusive visit to the Museum's rooms.
