Centre Miro

Mont-roig del Camp is a small town that is located inland about 10 km from the Cambrils beach. The town has the Centre Miro, which has reproductions of the paintings that Joan Miro painted while he stayed in the town. The address is Calle Major, 2. There are explanations of the paintings so that one can better understand Miro's work. Miro started going to the town when he was 18 years old, in 1911 after his father bought a house there as a vacation place away from the family home in Barcelona. Miro discovered the fields, the vines, olives and tamarind trees. Miro last stayed in the town in 1976 when he was 83 years old. According to the museum, the colors Miro used in his paintings were the ones he found in Mont-roig. Red came from the color of the red mountain behind the town, blue came from the color of the sky at Mont-roig, green came from the tamarind plants, and yellow came from the joy of Mont-roig.
