HISTORY

SHELTER

There are historical data that show that this homestead already existed to the 15th century and probably before, being one of the most ancient of the term. In the most ancient document preserved of the lligall of documents that preserve Mas Pla homestead and that dates of the May 15, 1839, appear as a owners  Josep and Joan Reimbau i Pla. Later the property happened, in a date that unknown, to the family Solà of Manresa and like this the year 1843 the proprietary is Vicenç Solà i Solernou; the year 1880 already appear his son as a proprietary, the doctor Josep Solà and Abadal; from the 1887 the leases will sign them the son of this in Joaquim Solà and Solernou and the year 1928 will be his widowed, the Mrs. Anna Serra  d'Arqué, what will feature as a proprietary.
Seem that in the Pla there were three children, the heir met the house of the Pla and with the other two split the inherited. To the second touched him the Planoi and to the small Cal Planellet, that is the house that has except land. Thereof it comes that these houses are next and have the same root in the name.

Mas Pla is formed by a group of buildings that organise around a playground closed and that they would be built in different periods how shows it the game of roofs. The main house is of rectangular plant with roof to double slope, with plant, flat and loft under roof, with paraments of stone. The door of main entry has a lintel of stone that also observes in the majority of the openings. Between the openings highlight the balconies of the façade.

To outside highlight was and a pond, both of stone. The pond is under Cal Jepet Vines and at the side right of the path that goes to the Pla, was the pond of the orchard of the Pla where harvested many viandes. Where there is the current pond of the Pla, done of stone, before there was one of land, where the women of the house went to wash.
The Pla had, in his property, a noria to the Cardener, with buckets, at the side garden of the homestead.
Also, beside the homestead there was a trull oil, as well as two vats in separate buildings and that still preserve .

 

During the year 2017, the haystack of the Pla remodelled to turn into the current shelter of pilgrims, a space where the pilgrim will be able to rest of his voyage to Montserrat or to Manresa, following the Path of Saint Jaume, the Path of Saint Ignasi or of other routes that cross the municipality.
