The Castle of Guanta is within the municipality of Sentmenat, on the hill of the Corb. The castle dates back to the year 1012 and, according to legend, it was a refuge of the count Borrell. Currently, it is in ruins (there are only two walls).

In a number of writings there is a considerable confusion between the House of Guanta (also called “the Castellet”), and the castle of Guanta. The building that has survived often receives the name of ” el Castell”, when it really is ” el Castellet”, and corresponds to the building of a house built on top the of the rock, on the walls of an even more ancient masia and taking advantage of part of the stones of the old building.
