Consell Comarcal de la Selva

The Current Owner of the Castle

Today the castle is owned by the Consell Comarcal de la Selva, thanks to the cession made by Mr. Josep Maria de Ribot, the previous owner. This cession was signed before the Culture Counsellor of the Generalitat, Joan M. Pujals, in the summer of 1998.

The public management body of the monument, the Patronat per la Gestió, Conservació i Millora del Castell de Montsoriu, was constituted in 1997. The Patronat is formed by the councils of Arbúcies, Breda, Riells i Viabrea and Sant Feliu de Buixalleu, the Associació d’Amics del Castell de Montsoriu, the previous owner, the Generalitat de Catalunya, the Diputació de Girona, private members, and the Consell Comarcal, which presides the Patronat and is the current owner.

Other institutions intervene, in a coordinated way, in the management of the Castle, often within the framework of the Patronat del Castell de Montsoriu. Institutions such as the Generalitat de Catalunya, the Diputació de Girona, the Parc del Montseny, the Museu Etnològic del Montseny – which directs the scientific works -, the Consell de Joves d’Arbúcies and the Regidoria de Joventut d’Arbúcies – in charge of the work camps – , as well as the Museu d’Arquologia de Catalunya, and the Servei d’Arqueologia, Girona section, for the archaeological work and digs.

The Castle is open to the public since 2011. For the first months it was only open to weekend guided tours; in 2015 it opened for unguided visits, after the new signposting of the enclosure. During 2015, with the opening of the new services building, the visiting days have been expanded with the aim of opening year round to allow visitors to admire what is considered to be Catalunya’s Gothic castle.
