On 25 November 2005 an international jury meeting in Paris agreed that UNESCO declared the Patum Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. La Casa de la Patum, inaugurated and opened to the public on 25 November 2007 aims to give visitors a taste of this festival.
The Patum of Berga is the celebration par excellence. Turned into a manifestation of popular theater unique in the world, is the miracle that Berga has managed to realize and perpetuate. A miracle that theinhabitants of the city who have preceded us have kept alive for over six hundred years.
