The Museu de Carrosses Fúnebres in Barcelona is home to one of the best collections of burial service carriages and hearses in Europe, and remembers the historical backdrop of memorial service traditions in Spain in the course of recent centuries. Contending with any semblance of the Sagrada Família and the Gothic Cathedral, the Funeral Carriage Museum is one of the city’s most novel museum. Open since the 1970s, the museum was established by the then metropolitan burial service parlor supervisor Cristóbal Torra, as an approach to save the memorial service carriages of the past. Innovative and social changes implied that a considerable lot of the memorial service carriages which had for a considerable length of time served the neighborhood network were old, yet Torra detected that these carriages ought to be safeguarded for descendants.
