    Haro Museum

    Les - Val d'Aran
  • The Haro Museum, located in the historic centre of Les (Val d’Aran, Pyrenees), is the space responsible for keeping alive the flame of the tradition of the “crema deth Haro”, the summer solstice festival, intangible heritage of humanity since 2015.

    The renovation of the building was a project steeped in history and symbolism. Our idea was to respect the original building, constructed in the late 1920s as a rural school, as much as possible. Over the generations, this modest building has become a symbol of the village. This meant we wanted to keep the entire exterior skin intact while emptying the interior walls to create a large open-plan room that would serve as a museum space. In addition, we removed the stepped entrance from the square and moved it to the flat end of the building, thus constructing accessible access for everyone.

    We wanted the new building to act as a brazier to keep alive the fire that, on the night of 23 June, is lit in the trunk of the Haro tree throughout the year. We built a place where the fire could return at dawn, almost drowned in ashes, to rest until the following year.
