Lithographic Museum Cadiz

Lithographic Museum Cadiz

The Lithographic Museum has its origin in the old German Lithography of Cádiz, installed in 1861 and which functioned as a printing press until the end of the twentieth century. It is one of the few museums of this type in Spain, as well as being the most complete. Cádiz was the third Spanish city, after Madrid and Barcelona, to have a lithographic laboratory.

The museum has an important collection made up of more than a thousand lithographic stones, originating from the Bavarian quarries, of great quality; among these some are true works of art, especially with regard to old prints and drawings. These stones are well preserved and on display to the public. Among the most surprising pieces in the Museum, there is a large stone weighing more than 300kg and a manual press manufactured in Paris in 1850, among the few that still exist in the world. In addition, the Lithographic Workshop Museum also has memories that still work in the hands of skilled engravers and specialists.
