More than 14,000 people have visited Casa Navàs during the summer months.
The new visits start successfully and are incorporated into the regular schedule of the house.
The interest aroused by Casa Navàs continues to grow, hundreds of people visit this unique Art Nouveau jewel every day. After a complex 2020 due to the health situation, Casa Navàs bids farewell to the summer months this year with a notable increase in the number of visitors. In total, more than 14,000 people wanted to discover this work by Lluís Domènech i Montaner. The incorporation of new types of visits, such as Dramatized Visits and Photographic Visits, has been very well received by the public, so much so that most of the scheduled visits have been sold out. From now on, these visits will be part of the regular offer of the house.
The last day of September marks the end of a summer season full of activity at Casa Navàs. With 14,529 people, this is the summer with the most visitors since it opened to the public in 2018. That means an increase of 167% over 2020 and 12% compared to the year before the pandemic. These figures confirm Casa Navàs as one of the main tourist attractions in the south of Catalonia.
If we analyse it by origin, for the second consecutive year, the Catalan public continues to represent the main clientele of Casa Navàs. In fact, it accounts for 63% of total visitors, down from 74% in 2020 and up from 48% in 2019. This change in percentages contrasts with the decline in international audiences. While in 2019 it accounted for 35% of visitors, this year it was 17%, up from 12% a year ago. International tourism, therefore, is slowly picking up but is still far from the usual pre-pandemic flow. For its part, Spanish tourism has always remained at around 15% of the total number of visitors.
The Dramatized and Photographic Visits are here to stay
When Casa Navàs reopened at the end of May, it did so by incorporating new types of visits to diversify the cultural offer and offer the public the possibility of enjoying the house from different perspectives. The bet has been a success, as practically all the tickets for the Dramatized Visits, the Photographic Visits, and the Sunsets at the Casa Navàs have been sold out.
Due to this good reception, the Dramatized and Photographic Visits will be added to the house’s winter activities, which also include the Vermouth Visits and the Modernist Nights, the latter including a guided tour, dinner, and an Art Nouveau concert. As for the Sunsets, they will remain part of the summer programme.
Collaboration with Accents Festival
Casa Navàs seeks synergies with cultural entities of the territory, in this line has opted for a collaboration with the Accents Festival. The Països Catalans pop, rock and folk festival will land in the beauty of Mercadal for two concerts. The first will be on 9 October at 8.30 p.m., when the musician Joan Colomo will present his latest work ‘Disc trist’. And on 30 October at 8.30 p.m., it will be the turn of Horacio Fumero and Pedro Javier González.
