Castle Santa Florentina
A magnificent historic country estate in Canet de Mar, close to Barcelona and the coves and beaches of the Costa Brava. The castle stands in beautifully maintained gardens.
The current appearance of the Castillo de Santa Florentina can be attributed to one of the more recent lords of the manor, Ramón Montaner, who employed the services of his cousin, the famed architect Lluis Domènech i Montaner, to transform the stern old castle into a country residence fit for a king.
King Alfonso XIII stayed here in 1908 and it has been mentioned in the influential publication, Architectural Digest, as one of its “Most Beautiful Homes in the World”. It certainly lives up to its name, with an entrance hall that sets the tone for the whole house; the sense of space, the enormous chandeliers and magnificent stone features surrounding the fireplace lending this room a feeling of “olde worlde” grandeur.
