Welcome to the accordion capital! 
Arsèguel is considered Catalonia’s accordion capital.
Every year, since 1976, it has hosted the Trobada amb els Acordionistes del Pirineu  (Gathering of the Accordion Players of the Pyrenees), the oldest folk music festival celebrated in the Catalan-speaking world. Arsèguel lies in the north-east of the comarca (local district) of L'Alt Urgell, in the very heart of the Pyrenees. It can be found on the lower spurs of the Serra del Cadí (Cadí Ridge), between the river Segre and the slopes of the Puig del Grau. Other points of interest to highlight are the Romanesque-style church of Santa Coloma and the Fàbrica de llanes (wool factory), and of course the marvellous views of the Pyrenees!

The instruments exhibited date from 1840 to the present day and include: melodeons, concertinas, bandoneons, and diatonic, semi-diatonic and chromatic accordions.
