THE ORIGINS OF THE AVINYÓ CASTLE

< volver

Can Fontanals is located in the beautiful setting of Avinyó, land that belonged to the castle of Avinyó, which was built in the year 990. In 1156, Ramón Berenguer IV gave the Mount of Avinyó to Berenguer of Avinyó in exchange for rebuilding the castle and building several houses in its immediate vicinity. After his death, the entire property passed into the hands of the Sant Cugat del Vallès Monastery.
