The Cork Museum founded in 1972, as the name says, on the subject of cork, collects, studies and disseminates the cultural and natural inheritance of the world of cork in Catalonia.

The Can Mario water tower Interpretation Centre in the modernist tower of the former Can Mario cork factory, now turned into a symbol of identity for Palafrugell, presents us with the history of this emblematic element and gives us access to its terrace which, at a height of 35m, gives privileged panoramic views of Palafrugell and the Empordanet region.
