Can Burgues

In 1523 this house belonged to Francesc Burgues, the royal procurator. On 26 November 1541 the emperor Charles V stayed here, after the failure of the military expedition against Algiers. It was the most expensive house in the 1576 property valuation. In 1636 it belonged to Nicolau Burgues and it currently belongs to the Blanes family. A great semicircular arched doorway leads into the vestibule area, with the staircase to the right. A segmental arch with the coat-of-arms of the Burgues family carved in the capitals provides access to the courtyard, with the coat-of-arms of the Blanes family to the left.
