The Celler de Vila-seca, the new venue for FICVI
The Celler de Vila-seca is located very close to the Castle and is considered a Cultural Asset of Local Interest. The building was constructed in 1919, the work of the architect Pere Domènech i Roure (also the work of the architect Lluís Domènech i Muntaner). The Celler was acquired by the Town Council of Vila-seca in 2014. Recently, a project has been launched to restore and museumise the cellar. The overall project aims to create a Cultural Park between the two major facilities available in the area: the Castle of Vila-seca, and the architectural complex of the Celler de Vila-seca, in order to allow various cultural uses.
