Discover

At La Garriga de Castelladral we can recover certain sensations that may have been lost some time ago, as we become immersed in the fast pace of daily life and feel we lack time. We would like to suggest a few activities so you can get to know our stunning local area a little better, and help you reconnect with Nature and with yourself. We hope you enjoy it.

Yoga and meditation

Yoga is an experience or state, in which we can connect to ourselves on a mental, physical, emotional and intuitive level.

The aims and benefits of yoga are direct and tangible for all, whether our aim is physical, mental, emotional or spiritual.

The yoga practice will work to develop greater bodily and mental awareness, and we will learn different relaxation and meditation techniques.

Throughout the year we organise specific yoga classes and also full retreats at the weekend.


Prices:
  • Individual private class for one or two people (90'): 85€
  • Group classes: please consult us
  • Yoga retreats: please consult us

Forest bath: circuit connect

The “Connect Circuit” is a special walk organized in the area surrounding the masia, where you will learn to see the forest with new eyes, and with all the senses. It is a deep immersion; a spiritual experience connecting you with nature, and with your deep inner self.

The idea behind a forest immersion is not as a sporting activity, or to go searching for anything in particular. Instead, it is to simply walk; seeing rather than looking, listening rather than hearing, feeling our breath, sensing calmness, and recognizing simple presence of being by connecting through all the senses.

Using our Audio Guide, the “Connect Circuit” transports us through time using our awareness and our memories. The Circuit creates a very unique and necessary connection with the cycles of nature, so we can follow its rhythms by letting go of everything we no longer need.


Prices:
  • 10€/person

Olive oil tasting & wine tasting

Let yourself be lead by sensations.

Go back in time to the XIX Century, a prime period of great splendour for La Garriga in wine and olive oil production. Taste the wine and olive oil of our region, surrounded by the old wine barrels that still remain in the Cellar of the house and the old oil press.

Why not try a very special wine or olive oil tasting experience? The tasting session begins with a visit to the masía's facilities, where the wine and olive oil were formerly produced (the wine cellar and storage vats). The tastings will then be held in The Old Press Room, on a beautiful stone table.

You will learn how to taste wine and olive oil, what its main characteristics are, and acquire a better knowledge of the products of our local area, Castelladral (el Bages).


Prices:
  • Olive oil tasting: 22 €/person
  • Wine asting: 29 €/person
  • *A minimum group of 6 people is necessary to organise the activity.

Creative workshops

Create a flower garland, learn to write a story, decorate a table with natural features, or discover the secrets of the oldest fonts…

Our creative workshops offer a little dose of creativity and inspiration so we can learn to actively relax, and develop our individual talents, whilst trying something we have always wanted to do (and never had time).

Many hours of our lives are spent at work, normally within a digital format, against the clock and at an extremely fast pace. We seem to have abandoned the habit of using our hands to create beautiful things, in a peaceful way, without an agenda, and whilst enjoying the present moment.

As well as creating something beautiful, our creative workshops provide time for us to enjoy being with ourselves, stimulating our ability in handicraft, a simple and very essential ingredient for our overall well being. Meanwhile we will be completely immersed in nature, fully absorbing the peace and tranquility of the areas surrounding our masía.

We are lucky to collaborate with a fabulous team of artists and creative artisans who make our workshops particularly special: Mireia Abras, Latitadefabiola, Jordi Capdevila... among others.

Sala piano concert

Next concert: 2019

We created The SALA PIANOConcerts because of our love and passion for music. The aim of the concert was to offer young pianists the possibility to play the piano in a really special place, out of the music school,  whilst offering them a meeting point for young pianists from our area.

The SALA PIANO Concert is organised by the Catalan Association of Music Schools and La Garriga de Castelladral. The concert is held in  the beautiful Piano room of the house.

We have already held five editions of the concert. In 2011 we dedicated the concert to the history of music, in 2012 the illustrator Valenti Gubianas painted an old piano, inspired by the young pianists’ melodies, in 2013 we made a tribute to the great pianist Manel Camp, and in 2015 the concert focused on pieces composed by the pianists themselves.


Prices:
  • 5 €/person (over 18 years).
  • Children under 18 free.
