Venue Setting

The Lord of the Castles
Perfect for unwinding “on the rocks” after a day packed with chic shopping and Modernisme in Barcelona. 

The castle is located on a hill above the town of El Papiol, overlooking the Llobregat River valley and the Collserola mountain range. It is one of the most prestigious citadels in Catalonia, dating back to the 11th century, and has been recognized as one of the finest private castles. Residents of the castle participated in the Reconquista of Spain, helped conquer Corsica and Sardinia and were dubbed loyal to the Catholic Monarchs in 1497. Just 17 kilometers from the city, with great road and public transport connections, this venue is just a stone’s throw from all the fashion, shopping, Modernisme and culture Barcelona has to offer.
