Can Magí

What defines us

 

IN-HOUSE KITCHEN

In Can Magí we have our own kitchen, so all our dishes are cooked and prepared on site.

EXCLUSIVITY

On the day of the event, the venue is hired exclusively for you. We never celebrate two events in the same day.

INTERIORS AND EXTERIORS

In Can Magí we celebrate events throughout the whole year. All our rooms  are conditioned for whatever the weather conditions might be. The weather is the only thing we will never be able to control, but we are prepared.

SUPPLIERS

In order to favour the personalisation of each event, we do not work exclusively with any supplier. However, we will be happy to recommend those we trust.

ACCESS

Access to the gardens is via a ramp. The rest of the areas are all on the same level, so all the accesses are wheelchairs friendly.

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS

In view of the above and given the capacity of our rooms, we require a minimum of 120 guests. Ask if your numbers are under.

A HOUSE WITH HISTORY

Can Magí building works started in 1878, when Dr. Martí Ragull i Alabau, a councillor at Barcelona’s City Council, commissioned his construction to the clerk of works Calixte Freixa i Plà. The building was initially conceived as a summer house, though it also included an area used for agricultural purposes. 

The house was commissioned at a time of stylistic transition. The contemporary Neoclassical style was associated with ideas of the old regime, and the new bourgeoisie were seeking to find their own form of architectural expression. Dr. Ragull had travelled extensively and had been seduced by certain French contemporary architectural trends. So, despite the plans of the original project displaying a will to combine the classic shape of the typical Masia or Catalan country house of the Vallès with the style of a bourgeois summer houses, several changes were introduced, eliminating all neoclassical elements and giving way to a clear example of the architectural eclecticism that preceded the Catalan Modernism movement.
