Museo de Casals information
On Plaza de San José is the Museo de Casals. A native of Spain’s proud but repressed province of Catalonia, world-famous cellist Pablo Casals moved to his mother’s homeland of Puerto Rico in 1956 to protest the dictatorial regime of Francisco Franco in Spain. He quickly established the respected Festival Casals for classical music, which became a principal force in the subsequent flowering of the arts on the island.
