Can Serrat, approximately 1187 square meters, is a classic old Catalan farmhouse. The space functions as a community where people from different cultures, fields, and topics of research can work on their own process, meet and exchange under the same roof. Located in the beautiful environment of El Bruc, a small village that skirts the mountain of Montserrat and is just forty-five kilometers from Barcelona, the house provides various spaces and workshops for working in an awe-inspiring surrounding natural environment. A pleasant walk along paths and trails leads one from the house to the foot of the mountain, where one can enjoy a spectacular view of Les Agülles, or The Needles, of Montserrat.
Can Serrat runs an artist and writing residency, a co.working program, and engages and develops relationships with the people, activities, and cooperatives in the local context. We also welcome people who love or have a knowledge of nature, hikers and climbers, researchers from a myriad of fields, travelers, and locals.
Spring is slowly unfolding before our eyes and we will soon again be able to enjoy fresh air, walking, and nature. Some of us may be adjusting to working from home or looking to leave the city. Once restrictions are lifted, Can Serrat will be renting rooms by the month or by the week until the end of December 2020. If you are looking for a quiet place to live and work, if you are interested in communal-style living, sharing meals and enjoying the fresh air and the outdoors, we would like to invite you to spend some time in the beautiful environment of El Bruc in the close proximity of Montserrat.
