Mas Cabanyes · History
It is one of the few remaining Renaissance-style private buildings in Catalonia and has been identified as a Cultural Asset of National Interest by the regional government. It is a fortified country house
Presided over by a large door with a fine lintel, crowned by a stone carving of King Charles I of Spain and V of the Holy Roman Empire.
The monarch stayed in the house during a hunting match and, in gratitude for the hospitality he received, the king granted permission to build turrets on the four corners of the house, a special favour awarded to very few noble families.
