During this period ancient villa Domus became extremely important for the region and turned into a kind of center for new settlements. The Canets with knight Ferrer de Canet at the head continued living in the house.

Primeros datos escritos conservados protagonizados por Guadamir de Canet (1024), Gilabert de Canet (1041) y Arnaldo de Canet (1168). Tenemos ya una primera nisaga de Canets. También en esta época, la Domus se erige como un primer núcleo de población o masías que se construyen en las vertientes del valle y bajo la advocación religiosa de Sant Pere de Romaguera (hoy con estudios que confirman su localización cercana a la Domus).


Before the 12th cent

From Roman times to the 12th century
The Marisme coast was full of evidences that these territories, including places close to the ancient villa - "Domus", were inhabited way back in Roman times. That is why it is no wonder, that the building could be constructed on the place of an ancient roman villa. Some researchers of this topic mention the 3rd century BC. This theory can be once again verified by the archaeological remains of old villas and domus founded in such towns near Canet de Mar, as Arenys de mar, Saint Paul, Mataro and along the whole length of August road.

At the turn of 9 - 10 centuries, ancient "Domus" was a participant and/or witness of accession of Old Catalonia (from the Pyrenees to the river Llobregat). Some of the villas and houses on the Maresme coast supplied people from Vayis Kanetum (old name of Canet de Mar) with the products from their farms, wood and wine. These events likely represent a prototype of the painting, which can be found on the wall in the Throne room. The painting represents Wilfred the Hairy, Count of Barcelona, who was wounded in battle (one of the legends how the flag of Catalonia was created).
