Can Rafel Blanes is a Neoclassical manor house dated from 1897
Its symmetry and its white and yellow facade makes it outstanding in the neighbourhood. It is a three storey building with a viewpoint as fourth storey. The most outstanding architectural element is the anteroom of the entrance portal, supported by columns of Ionic inspiration. We find the same motif in the central window of the main floor. The facade colour game, the mouldings, the lintel and circular windows show us a rich architectural language.
