Gabella is the name of an ancient tax on staple goods, and the same name was also used for the warehouses in which these goods were stored. This building, which dates back to at least the 17th century, is an old manor house with a square floorplan and a four-sided gable roof. It has served different purposes over the centuries. Originally a warehouse for staple goods, in the 18th century it became the town hostel and in the 19th century it was purchased by the Pagès family, which turned it into its home. Finally, in 1970, Arbúcies Town Council bought the building and since 1985 it has been home to the Ethnological Museum of Montseny.
