A tour of the Casa Rull in Sispony, La Massana, takes us back to the end of the 19th and early 20th century.
This house was built in the 17th century and has been transformed over time as the family has evolved. In the 19th century the house suffered a fire that also led to more renovations.
It shows us the way of life of a family of peasant landowners at a time when agriculture and stock breeding were the economic base of Andorran rural society. You will learn first-hand about how the families used to work, how they were organised, and how tasks and responsibilities were distributed among them. The Casa Rull was one of the most important houses in the parish of La Massana. Its former inhabitants, the Perich family, are a clear example of the landowner class (in Catalan we call them the ‘pagesos grassos’ or fat peasants) in the Pyrenees. This house saw heirs and heiresses, knights and dames, servants and maids, the lives of those who bear witness from the different times of bonanza and tribulations that the family had throughout its history.
The Casa Rull forms part of the Andorra Rural Habitat Circuit.
