Caterina Albert, Víctor Català, is the most universally known character from L’Escala and one of the essential writers of 20th-century Catalan literature. She cultivated different literary genres: novels, narratives, poetry and plays. Her best-known work is Solitud, a leading novel in Catalan and European literature which established her as a writer. In 2017, her heir and nephew, Lluís Albert, donated the author’s personal collection to L’Escala Town Council (Alt Empordà) so that everyone could enjoy her work and her legacy.
