HISTORY

La Farinera Sant Lluís is an emblematic space located in the municipality of Pont de Molins, in the Alt Empordà district, close to the northern Costa Brava and just 20 kilometres from the border with France. This select Empordanese place conceals an interesting history that we will explain to you below. The majestic building of La Farinera Sant Lluís was constructed in the early 20th century, specifically in 1913, at the wish of Teresa Pallejà (the widow of Lluís Gomis i Ros), a citizen of Barcelona, who converted the mill known as Molí d’en Borràs into a large mechanised flour-making factory which operated faster than the old stone mill. The building is very similar to La Farinera de Sant Jaume del Clot, in Barcelona. Until well into the 1960s, La Farinera Sant Lluís was a meeting place for farmers of the Alt Empordà, who transported their grain there to be made into flour, and for the young people of its surroundings, who met here to hold different events such as festivities, popular meals, gatherings of friends, and so on.

Having suffered the difficulties of the years following the Civil War, in the early 1980s La Farinera Sant Lluís was purchased by an Empordanese businessman who intended to convert it into a luxury residence, but this project was never executed and the building remained closed for 30 years. In 2013, the Costa family acquired the estate of La Farinera Sant Lluís and it was carefully rehabilitated and restored to convert it into a unique and exclusive space for holding events such as weddings, company meetings and even filming sessions. The building of La Farinera Sant Lluís is in the Art Nouveau style and has been catalogued by the Government of Catalonia. Today La Farinera Sant Lluís conserves all of its artistic value and surprises everyone who visits it. In addition to its historic building, it has a notable surrounding area: 650,000 m2 of parkland and two ponds, alongside the River Muga: an oasis in the heart of the Alt Empordà that adds a touch of distinction and elegance to any event.
