The castle of Gelida was a fortress, which had its origin in the 10th century in the context of the border that separated the territories of Al-Andalus and the Catalan counties, it is formed by the building of the castle and the church of Sant Pedro, also from 10th century. Over the centuries it has gone through different owners and uses, becoming a Gothic residence and finally being abandoned with the construction of the House of the Lord in the town of Gelida.

The visible structures today are the result of a historical process throughout which phases of abandonment and reconstruction have occurred, also marked by changes in the functionality of the spaces.
