"All my work is conceived in Mont-roig." The origins of Joan Miró’s work and his artistic universe can be traced back to this Tarragona village and, more specifically, to Mas Miró and its surrounding landscape. It was here, in 1911 following an illness, that the artist decided to devote himself fully to painting.
Mas Miró was the model for La masia (The Farm), the artist’s most emblematic painting from his figurative stage. It was also the place where the seeds of his later work germinated and matured and where his complex language of symbols took shape.
Mas Miró is made up of a series of buildings dating back to different periods, ranging from the 18th to the 20th centuries.
