History

 

The Domus Can Llensa, , tourist and cultural promotion center of Hostalric is located in Can Llensa. The building was originally built in 1898 by the entrepreneur Alfons Llensa i Plademunt as a cork factory. In 1914, when the First World War broke out, the company was forced to close.

 

During the Civil War, the building was re-built to use as a local school. In the mid 70s, the Town Hall bought the estate from the Llensa family and in 2004, it was renovated so that the Civic Centre, the Senior Citizen’s Centre and the Modest Salse library could be located there.

 

The current equipment was designed by MSB Estudi Taller de Arquitectura (2010) and was carried out by local companies and professionals. Since then, it has established itself as a multipurpose space focused on the tourist promotion of the municipality and the diffusion of the local cultural and gastronomic heritage.

 

The Domus - Can Llensa is the headquarters of the Tourist Information Office, part of the Network of Tourism Offices of Catalonia promoted by the Directorate General of Tourism of Catalonia.
