Ca l'Altsient is the former summer house of the Altisent family of musicians and writers. The old house, a two-storey building with a tower and various annexed volumes was built at the beginning of the 20th century. Despite its discreet architectural value, it was included in the catalog (BCIL) of heritage protection for its important value for Sant Climent’s people and for the role that the family house had in the development of the Catalan art scene of the early years of the past century hosting concerts and literature events.

In 2003, a deal between the former owners and the municipality allowed Ca l’Altisent and the surrounding land to become public property. After this, the city and AMB joint together resources to promote the construction of a new library in a renovated Ca l’Altisent building, and the creation of a series of new connected public spaces.
