Casa Galibern is the main house of the Mascort Foundation and is located in the historic center of Torroella de Montgrí. Is a colonial-style house from the late 19th century (1875), built by Ramon Galibern Casanovas (Torroella de Montgrí, 1817-1884), Ramon Mascort Amigó’s great-grandfather.

In the mid-19th century, Ramon Galibern “went to make the Americas” in southern Brazil, where he married Manuela Francisca de Rezende de Mello (1836-1928), a young woman from Rio Grande do Sul, with parents from the Portuguese island of Madeira.
The Casa Galibern was opened as the Mascort Foundation main house in 2007, and was restored and adapted to host the exhibitions and activities that the foundation organizes and offers to visitors. The original content of the house is not preserved, since it was destroyed during the Civil War.
Casa Galibern has three floors, with the main floor (the principal) and the floor above being given over to art exhibitions. The blue inner courtyard provides an attractive venue for openings, conferences and concerts. The structure of this courtyard is provided by columns that create a portico, as well as a usable terrace on the floor above. The third floor is not open to the public at the moment as it has yet to be restored.
