The National Automobile Museum in the centre of Encamp presents us with the vehicles’ evolution in history.
A visit to the site will allow us to see how these mechanical devices have served for carrying people and goods around the world and have been one of the most important challenges of the 20th century. The Pinette steam engine built in 1885 is the oldest piece in the museum. The collection, which is considered one of the largest in the south of Europe, includes around eighty vehicles, sixty motorcycles and around a hundred bicycles. This collection is complemented with a series of objects related to the world of automobiles: miniatures, posters, advertising, accessories, etc.
