Ca la Torre
Ca la Torre, located in the historic centre of Vandellòs, was originally a defence tower from the 16th century. These towers were essential for identifying danger and protecting the population from the frequent pirate attacks from the coast or from bandits.
Later, the tower was used for the construction of a country house, property of the Vernet family, which became the most significant in the entire town. From the Gil-Vernet lineage come the distinguished doctors Salvador Gil-Vernet and Emili Gil-Vernet.
This monument is an official Cultural Asset of National Interest (BCIN) and currently houses an exhibition on the history of Vandellòs, as well as the municipal historical archive. The tower is open for visitation and the gardens are equipped to host social and cultural functions in an open air setting with significant heritage.
