It is a building dating from the late seventeenth century and early eighteenth century. It is a noble residence and is a building of local relevance. It is made of irregular stone, wood and glass with doors and windows, metal balconies and Arabic tiles on the roof. In the last decades of the Ancient Regime it passed into the hands of "the Almunia", who were in possession of the title of Marquises of Ràfol since the 17th century. Castellonet was an independent seigniory of the Monastery of Sant Jeroni de Cotalba, but the Hieronymite villages charged part of the third of the century. The Castellonet Palace was a palatial house built at the end of the 17th century according to the construction guidelines of the palaces that were built in large cities, with an internal structure of medieval origin consisting of the articulation of the rooms within a central courtyard with a staircase at one end leading to the upper floors. Progressively, the Almunia House has been abandoned and has been gradually degraded. It was rehabilitated a few years ago.
