The Clubhouse called Torre Tabernera is a stately mansion, built by the great Olegario D’ardena Taberner Montornes, Conde de Darnius, on the old “Castell Vell dels Montornes”, which was destroyed during the War of Succession, which gave the crown from Spain to Felipe V de Borbón.
On the main façade there is a inscription engraved in stone “VETUS HOC CASTRUM SIVE DOMOS ANTIQUA 1,718”, allows us to fix the date of the building of the house.
In its façade as an ornamental motif, there are six altarpieces of 2.60 by 1.50, made of pottery, in the Luis XIV style of the early 18th century. These six paintings, supposed by the numbering they carry, should be integrated into a collection of twenty, which surrounded the house giving it a special presence.
In 1968 the works of restoration and extension of the Casa Palacio, were directed by the Head of Jefe de Ornato del Excmo. Ayuntamiento de Barcelona Sr. Ros de Ramis, who got a perfect and harmonious ensemble, which today houses the Club de Golf Vallromanes facilities.
