In the charming and quiet medieval town of Castelló de Empúries is this beautiful large 17th century house on a 337m2 plot with 1,011 m2 of habitable space, distributed over 4 spacious levels in a very quiet area in the heart of the city.
Modern period house built on the 14th century house-palace of the abbot of Sant Pere de Rodes. It was the manor house of the educator and Jesuit Ramón Ruiz Amado and the writer Luis Ruiz Contreras.
The building is located on the same site where the house previously documented in 1383 as the house-palace of the abbot of Sant Pere de Rodes, in the Monte Salner neighborhood. The two dates inscribed on the lintels of the two vestibule doors refer to the date of construction (1681) and a later reform (1927). The current nineteenth-century house with a ground floor and two floors was owned by a family of Castilian officials, of which two brothers stand out: the educator and Jesuit Ramón Ruiz Amado and the writer Luis Ruiz Contreras, linked to the Generación del 98. In the fore hall there are wall paintings with classic style images, covered up during the postwar period under the slogans of Spanish Catholic Action.
The house has preserved its authenticity with elements from different periods such as fireplaces, terracotta floors, authentic doors of the time, high ceilings with wooden beams, the 18th century staircase, the ancient theater, an old chapel, very high ceilings with Catalan vaults.
The ground floor consists of the spectacular entrance, steeped in history, a garage / warehouse and an independent apartment. The first floor has been mostly renovated with a staircase, a beautiful kitchen with a fireplace, a bright living / dining room, a cozy living room, a bathroom, 5 bedrooms;
