Extraordinary and unique farmhouse originally dated back to the 10th century, with 2,000 m2 built and a plot of around 97,000m2. Located Eastern Valleys. Barcelonés region. Catalonia. Spain.
The origin of the farmhouse takes us back to the 10th century, with a humble beginning with small buildings that served as shelter for shepherds and animals. Over the centuries, the main house was expanded to become in the s. XIII in a large farmhouse. At the beginning of the 20th century, there are years of stories, legends, wars and secret hiding places. In 1989 it enters a new stage in the hands of its new owners and the farmhouse is restored and takes a life again.
Located in El Montseny Natural Park, in a natural and protected area, located in the province of Barcelona. Protects an area of the Catalan pre-coastal mountain range of the Montseny massif. It shares territories in the Osona, Vallés Oriental and La Selva regions. The pronounced reliefs it presents and the rich ecological variety stand out. For this reason, in 1978 Unesco declared it a biosphere reserve.
This natural park is the oldest in Catalonia and is also one of the most important, since in a relatively small area you will find typical plant communities of the three great European biomes: the Mediterranean (holm oaks, cork oaks and Aleppo pine), the Eurosiberian (Scots pine, beech and white fir) and the Alpine bore (Alpine meadow).
It should be noted that the Montseny natural fir forest is the southernmost in all of Europe.
