Among cliffs and forests, in the small town of Gallifa there are good examples of the rural life of the village. Masies as the Mas del Racó, next to the parish church, is a typical example of the traditional popular architecture, with gable roof. In this house it was installed the ceramist Llorenç Artigues, collaborator of Joan Miró. After his death, his son converted it in his Foundation, where nowadays there are workshops and ceramic works, exhibitions and it functions as a  refuge centre for artists.

In the same neighbourhood of the Raval, which was formed in the middle of the 18th century, the simple houses of farmers have been restored and are now second residence houses. In some of them you can still see doors and windows framed with rough stone, with the date of construction on the lintel. In this space you can also find the Vicarage, a centre of considerable dimensions. It has a lintel doorway and it preserves some windows with jambs and the lintel of stonework.

Within the town, further north, the masia del Sobregrau, a very old one, documented from 1200, which has been renovated and enlarged over the centuries. It has a Baroque chapel built in 1758, dedicated to the Virgin of the Rosary.
