On May 24-27, private owners of heritage houses, chapels and churches will open their doors and organize special activities, under the common banner ‘Our House, Your Heritage’.
The European Private Heritage Week has four objectives:
- Raise awareness on the contribution of private owners of heritage buildings to society
- Foster exchanges between owners/managers and the public
- Increase synergies with the living arts
- Promote public engagement, especially the young generation
2018 is our chance to change the narrative surrounding private owners, highlight our contribution to society and achieve real political outcomes! We are counting on you!

Cultural event with classical music.
4-7 May (11.00-17.00)
This year exhibition Legacy, will explore the importance of heritage, in personal and collective terms, looking both at the past and at the future. As individuals, the intangible inheritance we have received from our upbringing shapes us profoundly. At the same time, there comes a moment in life when we must ask ourselves what meaning our life and work has for the future.
Legacy will present new works by nineteen international designers, spread across the historical rooms of the castle, which are normally not open to the public. Modern design will be placed in conversation with old artefacts and fine art.
The exhibition is open to the public from 11:00 to 17:00 and the ticket costs 5€. Members: free entry.
Conference ‘What place for the Historic House in Ireland in the 21st Century?’, Dr. Terence Dooley M.A., Professor of History of Historic Houses and Estates, Maynooth University
Parc Samà wants to celebrate the important heritage of those “indianos” who with their fortune raised the main modernist buildings in Catalonia. One of the best examples is the work of Josep Fonseré, main architect of the park. But Modernism was not just an architectural, but also artistic movement; it was an artistic renewal, shaped by a new aesthetic based primarily on nature.
The event aims to link three essentials concepts of Parc Samà: Modernisme, Indianos and Nature; through a celebration that combines actors and visitors wearing white dresses, concerts of “havaneres”, exhibitions, games and guided visits.
Lunch and dinner in the house as in the old days at €15/pax.
