Artistic historical monument from the XIX Century

Can Magí is the result of a family's dream.

 

Can Magí was built in 1878. The venue was initially conceived as a summer house, although a space was also allocated to give more use to the vineyard.

His owner, Dr. Ragull, a member of the Catalan bourgeoisie of Barcelona, ​​commissioned the construction to the master builder Calixto Freixa i Pla.

The drawing of the original project shows the desire to synthesize the classic volume of the typical masia of the Plana del Vallés with the bourgeois summer house. When the construction began, several modifications were introduced and the building lost all initial neoclassical aftertaste, standing openly in modernism, although keeping a nobel air.

The alternation in the use of brick and stone gives the whole building a unique chromatic effect. The main facade faces South, overlooking the Tibidabo, and the entire venue is surrounded by 4,000 m2 of lawned gardens and old trees.

Nowadays, Can Magí is part of the Catalonia's Architectural Heritage Inventory. It was highly known thanks to its cellars.
