The Moianès Ecomuseum

The Moianès Ecomuseum is a cross-sectoral and territorial project that aims to enhance the heritage existing in the Moianès region, turning it into a tourist cultural, environmental, economic and social product, in order to bring economic activity and new jobs to the 10 municipalities of the region.

Despite being a small geographical area, the Moianès region reflects all the economical activities and pre-industrial processes that the country went through in the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and we can learn about it in a rounder and more comprehensive way through the Ecomuseum with its 300 km2:
- 10 radial spaces that can be museumized. Each of them will be located in a town within the Moianès region and will represent a different theme within the pre-industrial period of the area.
- More than 100 places open to visitors where one can see the different aspects of the social and economic history and of the pre-industrial activities of the area.

The main areas which form the thematic strand of the different branches and configure the Ecomuseum are:
- Exploitation of forest resources (Castellcir)
- Exploitation of water power (Calders)
- Water transformation cycle (Castellterçol)
- Transformation of soil (Sant Quirze Safaja)
- Stone production and exploitation (Monistrol de Calders)
- Water mills (Moià)
- From traditional manufacturing to modern textile industry (Santa Maria d’Oló)
- The old transport and communication systems (Collsuspina)
- The power of water and soil (L’Estany)
