Can LLopis is the name of a family home built in 1793 and is one of the most impressive mansions in the new part of Sitges. Bernadi Llopis I Pujol lived between 1814 and 1891 and was one of the wealthiest men in the city. The post office was installed in the basement of the house. The last member of the family to live in the mansion was the diplomat Manuel Llopis I Casades (1885-1935) and he left the house to the Catalan government in 1935 to use as a museum. This had to wait until the end of the Civil War, and after several reforms of the building the museum was opened to the public. It shows the lifestyle of a rich Catalan family at the height of the Romantic movement. Visitors can see the music room, ballroom, dining room and bedrooms. There are wall paintings, porcelain, glass from Murano and Bohemia, musical instruments and other collections. There is a collection of dolls donated to the museum by writer and illustrator Lola Anglada Barcelona (1892-1984).The collection contains more than four hundred dolls from various countries.
