Casa Sastre-Segui is a large house that was built in 1830 in the very centre of Patró (or Alpatró), one of the eight small villages that make up the municipality of Vall de Gallinera.
The owners are the family that inherited this interesting house from its founders, and they have known how to restore it with all the patience and care in the world and with a lot of taste, meticulously preserving its unique features. Casa Sastre-Segui was once the home of a family of farmers wishing to protect themselves from roaming bandits, who during those years hid themselves away among the abrupt mountain ranges of the district of La Marina. Therefore, the large country house was fortified, and one can highlight a small watchtower on its main facade, on the second floor. This is a large stone construction with embrasures that enable them to watch the streets and even use a harquebus, catapult or rifle. Also, within the four-storey house you can still see several holes strategically placed to observe the outside from several rooms.
Given that it was a farmhouse, large areas were destined to the storing of products, from cereal crops to carob beans, almonds and olives. Casa Sastre-Segui also had an "almassera" (oil mill), destined to the home production of olive oil, and still today, we have preserved two of the presses used for this task, as well as other utensils and traditional farming tools.
