28/8/13 Tintín, intrepid adventurer

From the 6th of June to the 29th of September, the Museu d’Història de Catalunya will host the “Aquel joven reportero que tenía un fox terrier blanco” exposition, a tribute to the iconic character of Tintin and his creator, Georges Remi (Hergé).

“Aquel joven reportero que tenía un fox terrier blanco” exposition will show images, post cards, frames, ads and book illustrations that helped Hergé to make the famous book comic. A whole tour about the secrets and difficulties that  the 24 Tintín comic books since 1930 went through.

The stories  and unforgettable adventures of Tintín and Milú (a white fox terrier) are based on true facts.  The author compiled information about the historical, political and economic context; he also thought about the geography, fauna and flora environment, monuments, transport and all the things that were important to him to make the story more credible.

Reading Tintin stories is reading about twentieth century history because through that stories you can travel to real countries such as Germany, China, the Belgium Congo or Tibet, among others. However, Hergé also has taken us to fictional countries where he was able to talk about real political problems and particular social contexts. Because of this, he talked about some issues without the fear of being punished.

If you want to know a little bit more about this character and the history that involves him, this is the exposition you must see. From our luxury hotel we encourage you to go to the Barceloneta, where the Museu d’Història de Catalunya is, and to enjoy a good meal in any of Grupo Tragaluz restaurants that have a fantastics views to the sea.
