We invite you to explore one of the most fascinating things in rural Catalonia: the Catalan masia (Country home).
A masia is probably the most iconic building the Catalan countryside: big isolated stone family houses associated with farming or livestock activities.
The owners lived on what they produced on their lands and the right of exploitation have been passing down from parents to children as it was customary from the Middle Ages.
It is so thrilling to find very old masias. Some are dated as far back as the twelfth century! A lot of masias have been transformed into luxury holiday villas and event centres.
