This beautiful Villa, which currently serves as the center for the Ave Maria Foundation, was built in 1907 by architect Josep Domènech Estapà. Domènech has built several famous buildings and institutions in Barcelona and Catalonia and created his own style through the modification of Classical motifs, distinct both from Eclecticism and Modernisme, and managing to remain accepted by the establishment.
This Villa is located in Carrer Artur Carbonell. 11-15 just few steps away from the train station. The house has an attached chapel and it is built in a beautiful modernist style.
In the front garden there are two tall and beautiful palm trees and in this picture you can admire the shade that these palm trees create in the beautiful villa's facade. Villa Havenmann is very nicely restored and well kept and it is definitely a building that deserves to be included in your modernist route in Sitges.
