Visit el Castell de Vila-seca

Contemporary art in a historic setting

The history of the town of Vila-seca has always been linked to the castle, since they both originally date from the 12th century.

The castle was built during the repopulation of Camp de Tarragona by Ramon de Olzina, first feudal lord of Vila-seca, by order of King Alfons I the Chaste, Archbishop Bernat Tort and Guillem de Tarragona.

It later passed to the Archbishopric of Tarragona, which in 1680 sold it to Johan Kies, the Dutch consul in Barcelona.

In 1899 the castle and its lands were acquired by Isidre de Sicart i Torrents, who renovated the house according to a design by the architect Enric Fatjó i Torras, and from then on it was known as the Castle of the Count of Sicart. This is why, the building, as we see it today, is in the neo-Gothic style, with stylistic influences from central and northern Europe.

On 22 October 2005, the town hall of Vila-seca approved the acquisition of the castle and the adjacent garden.
