Can Lliure

Route POI
Index card


The walk continues, passing Can Lliure, a Catalan farmhouse with magnificent views out over Girona as far as the Montseny massif. Its strategic position led the French army to set up base there during their siege on Girona in 1809.

The farmhouse typifies traditional architecture of residential dwellings in Sant Daniel and until the 20th century individual farmhouses were spread out across the entire valley, right up to the city gates. Agriculture was the main livelihood for residents, in addition to animal farming and foraging in the forests and nearby lands.
