In 1957, Pere Carbó and Carmen Jane opened the Pension Goya.

Initially it was working mostly as a student’s residence, given to its proximity to the Technical University, but during the summer it welcomed to the first tourists families, mainly French, who came attracted by our beaches and gastronomy.

A few years later, Miquel Gatell and Carmen Carbó, as second generation, build the Hostal Can Gatell.
In 2015 a new change of ownership leads Can Gatell to the conversion into a Hotel. After a few months of renovation you can now enjoy a new space to stay, either for leisure or business in a relaxed, youthful and fresh atmosphere in the heart of Vilanova.
