Become a Norn Founding Member


The villa was originally built in the 1900s for three sisters. Each had their own self-contained “apartment” within the house, two of which remain today. The villa’s foundation is much older, dating back to an ancient Roman Wall built in 4th century AD.


Poble Sec is one of the few remaining areas where locals still dominate the plazas, tapas restaurants (including our favorite Quimet y Quimet), and vermouth bars. Above us sits Montjuïc, home to the Miró Foundation, Poble Espanyol, and a Greek amphitheater.


Originally named Cal Blau, our villa features many outdoor spaces that have 360 degree views of Barcelona. Nearly all year round, Norn salons are hosted in either one of the side terraces or rooftop.


Conversations and dinner parties that will stimulate your mind, challenge your worldview, and introduce you to people from around the world.
