Impressive mansion in the center of one of the most famous towns in Maresme and close to Barcelona. This masterpiece of medieval architecture is essentially made up of a body with a square plan, with a tower also with a square plan placed at the extreme right of the façade and crowned by battlements.

It has a ground floor and two floors, although its internal distribution is of three bodies perpendicular to the main façade, with a transverse body at the back, formerly used as a cellar. The proportions of the central part of the house stand out, with the staircase at the bottom and the large stone voussoir arches, both in the old kitchen and in the old cellar.

On the façade, there is a voussoir arch portal and the family coat of arms. The windows are all structured with lintels and jambs of stone ashlars, in the Gothic style, formed by a monolithic lintel, mostly from the 16th century. The ends of the small arches show sculpted human heads. The jambs are also made of carved stone and, at the height of the imposts, they show faces and sculpted plant elements.

Attached to the left and rear side of the old house is a later construction with an irregular structure, which in some cases covers old structures on the outside and in others creates currently useless spaces, such as the parade ground.

This architectural complex has a chapel located on the right side of the tower. This chapel dating from 1612 is crowned with a bell and two small turrets covered with a four-sided roof, one on each side of the roof. The façade is made up of a small rose window with leaded stained glass windows and the Gothic portal with moldings on the lintel and the jambs. On both sides of the door there are two rectangular half-height windows.

The oldest part of this property corresponds to the Southeast angle tower, which partly dates from the 10th century. The other elements of the house are already from the 15th, 17th and 20th centuries. At the end of the 15th century and the beginning of the 16th, a central body was incorporated into the tower. Subsequent constructions have been made over the centuries but its authentic style remains intact.

Other auxiliary constructions that have been carried out over time are also part of the complex, such as a swimming pool and a leisure area with barbecue and gym, as well as an old farm.

The state of the mansion is excellent and it has original noble materials of stone and masonry as well as carpentry and wooden floors in excellent condition, as well as a perfectly maintained roof without any type of pathology, thanks to its constant maintenance by part of their owners.
