The Museu d'Histria de la Ciutat is considered an important part of Girona's cultural heritage because it exhibits a valuable collection of the first human inhabitants (Catalonia's oldest prehistoric human beings) and recently findings of the 19th and 20th century. The magnificent Museu d'Histria de la Ciutat (City History Museum) is located in the city center so it's really easy to find it. The museum provides plenty of cultural activities and temporary exhibitions to the locals and foreigners throughout the year.

The central museum of Girona was created in 1981 in order to recover and protect the old quarter of the city. During the 18th century, the Museu d'Histria de la Ciutat (City History Museum) was an important monastery called Monastery of Capuchin Friars. Nowadays, the museum holds interesting and valuable religious items from the 18th century. As an example we can mention the desiccation cemetery and the cistern.
