What's So Special About Colònia Rusiñol?
Formerly a textile factory, Colònia Rusiñol is a unique industrial wedding venue. Located close to Girona in Northern Spain, near Manlleu and on Ter River bank, in the centre of Catalonia.
For many years it was not only the residence of the Rusiñol family, but a place to host extravagant literary events.
It was once the venue where the artist Santiago Rusiñol would organize stays with his friends, Ramon Casas and Enric Clarasó, and where his brother Albert would have meetings due to his status as a prestigious industrialist and politician.
