Discover the story behind the Celler Can Roda
Our farmhouse is one with history close to Barcelona. The first document that mentions it is from 1447 and currently sits in the Diocesan Archive of Barcelona (ADB).
This document refers to the possessions of the owner of Can Roda, Juan Rueda, in Santa Maria de Martorelles. Before that, Juan Rueda acquired the surrounding land and the farmhouse. Comments on these documents confirm that the farm was named after Can Maiolo.
About its beginnings as a winery and vineyard
In 1864, Can Roda was acquired by the Bonaplata family of Barcelona and built in Santa Maria de Martorelles this historical farmhouse with forty hectares surrounded by woods and vineyards.
The farmhouse has an unprecedented construction style with a square plan with predominance of tile on stone, which differentiates it from the type of architecture characteristic of Catalan manor houses, probably because its construction was later.
Enjoy its excellent location
Located in a privileged setting, this historical farmhouse is surrounded by vineyards and forests. Can Roda is a natural oasis next to Barcelona located in the Sierra de Marina Nature Park. The Sierra de Marina is a mountain chain with a moderate altitude that never exceeds 600 m.
It is unique due to the fact that it rises steeply between the seacoast and the Vallès plain. The mountain range separates the Vallés Oriental region from those of Maresme and Barcelonès.
