Craft related to a trade has always been a characteristic feature of our town. Since 1989, there has been a modernist stained-glass workshop in Canet which restores and produces new windows for the whole of Catalonia and elsewhere.
Now the Town Hall and the Estralls workshop offer the chance to visit the modernist stained glass workshop and to complete the different cultural and tourist routes that can be done in Canet de Mar.
In Estralls you can see the workshop where lead stained-glass windows are made in a traditional technique and you will be explained the history of glass and stained-glass, with special reference to the modernist version. You can see some replicas of works and the tools and raw materials that are used.
In addition to works done for private houses, the Estralls craftsmen have restored and made the stained-glass windows for the Parish vault, in the University Technical School of Knitted Fabric, the Sanctuary of Mercy, the Santa Florentina Castle and the Casa Roura house.
The tour of the workshop lasts 30 minutes and costs 3 euros per person. It is intended for the general public as well as schools and groups. The minimum number of people for the tour is 10, up to a maximum of 20. You can contact the workshop directly or book through the Domènech i Montaner Museum House.
