History and description:
This house and it's surroundings were projected by Josep Puig i Cadafalch and built between 1898 and 1900.
This property is a magnificent ensemble including a big house who is really a palace  with a big number of sumptuous dependences and a small theatre, splendid gardens, a chapel and the enclosures being themselves an artwork. 
The house was built in the place of an old rural residence by a rich financier.
The ensemble has been recently restored and looks now as one of the most magnificent houses in the Maresme (the region along the coast in the north of Barcelona).
The style of the houses into the property correspond to the first of the three periods of the architect (rose period), following the classification of Cirici i Pellicer.
The house is private owned and it's not possible to visit the interior.
