It is one of the most fascinating places in the municipality and is highly linked to the life of many people in Cambrils and the surrounding area. The ensemble is extremely beautiful and harmonious both in terms of architecture and landscapes.
Samà Park is between the districts of Cambrils and Montbrió del Camp and it is a genuine architectural and botanical treasure. It was developed by Salvador Samà, Marquis of Marianao and heir of a family that had made their fortune in Cuba during the period when it was a Spanish colony. It is the colonial style that dominates the area’s architecture, which was designed by Antonio Gaudí’s teacher, Josep Fontseré Mestres, designer of the Ciutadella Park in Barcelona.
This provides an exotic and romantic environment, expressed through a system of main roads or paths bordered by rows of trees (including many species of palm tree and examples of stone pines) or in spaces where there are important architectural elements. Although most of the original species of animals are no longer there, you can nevertheless enjoy the bright presence of peacocks.
The two main centres of the park are the Marquis’ house and the lake, which has a canal and a waterfall decorated with granite bridges that have the same feel as wood. In the centre of the lake, there is an original rock column with a small Gothic-style temple on top, acting as a viewpoint over the whole park.
