Castell de Sant Marcal weddings are truly the best choice for celebrating your timeless love! Positioned just outside Barcelona, this grand 12th-century castle and villa is ideal for couples desiring a wedding venue that delivers history, elegance, and timeless romance. The venue’s splendid Romanesque and Gothic architecture has been beautifully restored and today, it’s a popular option for destination weddings in Barcelona

This fabulous space has long been an important gathering place for Spanish high society and has been owned by the same family for more than 700 years. Today, it’s available for private use for weddings and is one of the most popular luxury wedding venues in Barcelona, with plenty of accommodation options nearby for your wedding guests. 

Here’s why you’ll love to get married at Castell de Sant Marcal!

You’ll Instantly Fall In Love With The Castell de Sant Marcal Wedding Venue

From the moment you step foot onto this stunning, sun-drenched property, you’ll be in awe of its wonderful spaces, reminiscent of a film set. Admire the grand formal gardens and Under the Chestnut Trees, the venue’s illuminated courtyard, surrounded by ancient trees, that’s ideal for afternoon receptions that fade into evening. 

While the mild climate means a Barcelona wedding can be celebrated outdoors most of the year, the interior spaces of the villa are also spectacular — many couples love the historic cellar, adorned with historic murals, or the Greenhouse, a light-filled atrium that can host up to 600 guests, cocktail style. 

Each gorgeous space can be transformed to suit your vision, giving couples complete control over the aesthetics of their celebrations. All of the vendors that service Castell de Sant Marcal are world-class as well, creating cuisine, entertainment, and hospitality that you and your guests will never forget.
