In a previous blog post I wrote about three excellent wedding venues for getting married in Barcelona and its surroundings; Hotel Miramar, El Munt and El Convent. During this summer and early-autumn wedding season, I have discovered two more wedding venues that I would like to share with you; La Baronia and La Torre dels Lleons.
Outstanding view overlooking a small Catalan town
La Baronia is situated up on a hill, close to the village Sant Feliu de Codines, about 45km from the very centre of Barcelona. La Baronia has been built in a modernist style on top of an old farmhouse, tracing back to the sixteenth century. The venue is surrounded by nature and is an excellent venue for celebrating the wedding both inside as outside. La Baronia has an outstanding view over the small Sant Feliu de Codines village, valleys of Vallès Oriental and the skyline of Barcelona.

A typical Catalan “Masía” with lots of history
My second recommendation for a wedding venue close to Barcelona is called La Torre dels Lleons, which means the Mansion of the Lions in Catalan. This beautiful wedding venue is located only 8 km from the centre of Barcelona and 12 km from the airport and has a very interesting history. La Torre dels Lleons, as it is today, was built in the 19th Century on the ruins of the Picalqués castle in Espluegues (Barcelona) but the origins of the place traces way back all the way to the 2nd Century AD. There are for example two headstones with Roman epigraphs that can still be seen by the staircase, at the bottom of the patio access.
