CAN DOCTOR QUADRES
Can Doctor Quadres house was built by the "Americano" (those who returned from the Americas) Cristòfol Cuadras i Massó in 1874.
In the 1866 identity card records he is stated as living in El Palou Baix.
Detached building located in El Palou Baix, near Sant Pere de Ribes town centre. It has a rectangular floor plan and is structured in three bays.
It consists of a ground floor, first floor and upper floor and has a gable roof with the ridge parallel to the façade. The front is symmetrically arranged along three axes and defined by segmental arched openings framed by a moulding in a different shade. The entrance doorway is a stone segmental arch, with the keystone inscribed with the initials "C C" and the year "1874". The windows on the first floor are enclosed by a ceramic handrail, while the central window opens onto a balcony with wrought iron railings.
Moulded cornices run along the floor levels, with one crowning the façade and having a certain overhang, which precedes a ceramic handrail. The rear façade features two horizontal galleries of five porticoes with a panelled arch, above which there is a walkable terrace. The exterior finish is plastered and painted cream with white frames, cornices and corners.
The house has been completely restored as a hotel, although the decorated ceilings and mosaic floors have been preserved.
