Documented from the s. XIV. In the course of its history this house has been named: Mas Rossinyol, Mas Rossinyol de Moragues, Mas Aguilera del Pla and Mas Macià (from the 19th century) which is currently known.

The farmhouse of Can Macià is a Catalan autochthonous construction: a roof of two winds and white walls where the stones that frame the doorway stand out. Oriented to the south to receive all the light of the day, a sundial tells us that the time does not stop.

The farmhouse has different spaces for wine production, housing, animals and a chapel dating from 1927.

The ancestral house: It is preserved decorated with elements of different eras. It follow the structure of the Catalan farmhouse, on the first floor there were stables to one side and the kitchen on the other side, which allowed the rooms on the upper floor being warm.
On the third floor, the grain was stored in its origins, insulating the house. Now we find the attic-museum where ancient objects are collected.

The chapel: It is a popular-style building with a neogothic historicist touch. In the inside there are some wall paintings made in 1927 by Josep Pey i Farriol, based on the tradition of the appearance in Barcelona of Our Mercè Virgin, on the night of August 2th, 1218 to Saint Peter Nolasc, Saint Ramon de Penyafort and King Jaume I, to send them the foundation of an order for redemption of captives, “mercedaris”. The altar is presided over by an alabaster image of the Virgen de la Merced.
