Accessed by a private drive, this 11th century fortress located on the outskirts of Barcelona is an exceptional example of Romanesque architecture, boasting a private courtyard, three floors of living accommodation and a stately tower.

Originally constructed as a castle in the 11th century, this unique property was later reconstructed in both the 14th and 15th centuries and now offers 2,000 sqm of magnificent living space. With its own unique character and an array of period features throughout, the property boasts generous windows, elegant stone archways, impressive stone canopied fireplaces and high ceilings throughout.

The ground floor is in a very good state of repair and features various independent apartments, as well as a spectacular wine cellar.

An imposing two-metre wide central staircase leads guests upstairs to lofty reception rooms and bedrooms on the first floor, while the second floor and tower benefit from various open-plan rooms in need of renovation.

It is not just this unique property’s time-honoured past that makes this fortress so special, but also its ability to effortlessly combine its historical features with comfortable modern-day amenities. High-ceilinged, generous rooms with ornate features flow seamlessly into more informal areas, making it ideal for family living and entertaining alike.

Its elevated position provides this unique property with commanding views of its 3 ha of parkland and the rolling countryside beyond, while its superb location just outside Barcelona, offers an enviable rural lifestyle, just 15-minutes from the clamour of city life.
