Ethnographic Museum Casa Cristo, Encamp
Ethnographic Museum Casa Cristo is a visual history of Andorran life of one simple family of farmers of IX-XX. The house has three floors and a ground floor with a barn, cellar and agricultural facilities. A narrow wooden staircase leads to the first floor with a kitchen equipped with a large number of ancient objects of interior, and dining room with fireplace and two bedrooms – one belongs to the master and mistress of the house, the second – his mother. The second floor is so-called “upper room”, next to which there is a small children’s bedroom. Interior decorations, household supplies, clothes, pictures on the walls – everything is so harmonious that creates a feeling of reality, as if a family of farmers just have gone somewhere and will return home.
Nothing has changed since then, when in 1947 the last owners of this house, Merse and Florentina decided to close the estate and move to France. Later in 1990, the house and all its utensils, and the original interior was purchased by the city of Encamp and opened as the ethnographic Museum.
