Short history of Casa Argentera

In the 1920’s the nearby castle Escornalbou was restored by the diplomat Eduard Toda. The stone carver Joanet, who was working on the castle during the restoration, was given a piece of land in L’Argentera by Eduard Toda. Here he built Casa Argentera. In the balcony of the house, which is carved in stone, you still see the beautiful work of this craftsman. Read more about the stories of Escornalbou, Eduard Toda, Antoni Gaudi and Joan Miro and how they were inspired in this area here:

The village & the territory

A place in a hidden valley, far from daily stress and noise, but close to everything. Located between the golden beaches and the famous wine region of The Priorat, this village has it all. Full of rich traditions which are kept alive, you can get to know the locals over a beer and/or a game in the bar beside the house. You can try the wild boar or mushroom soup in the local restaurant, or mingle at the public swimming pool with a view, where we grant you free access during summertime. Or, you can get the news at our small but well-assorted shop, just as the locals do.
