Existing documents speak of this nucleus and in 1017, and its famous castle, later, the year 1065, when it passed to the Counts of Barcelona.
The castle passed through different hands over time, but it is with family Corbera, about the fifteenth century, when it was their time of greatest splendor. Even so, its importance stems from this fact.
The medieval castle is so well known because the 1969 Salvador Dalí Gala promises, the love of his life, buying a house, which was finally Pubol Castle. Dalí bought it in very bad condition, and was Dalí himself who restored and painted. Once restored Dali gave it to his beloved and has therefore become one of his most pure excellence.
