In 1936 and only with 15 years old, Joaquim Pujol emigrated to Switzerland to go into exile from the Civil War and look for a new life. Once the war finished he returned to Empordà region where he got married and built a family with Herminia Custey.

Together they bought the “Mas Sunyer” to Robert, Marquis of Torroella de Montgrí and earl of Sant Iscle d’Empordà who in that time had several properties around the zone.
