Parochial church

This is the town’s focal point, dating back to 950 and has undergone many extensions over the years. 

The original romanesque construction was totally destroyed in 942. The current building owes its origin to a new construction, completed 8 years later at the point of its consecration. Later, during the gothic period, significant extensions were made. The main structure and the bell tower, which is a 35m high square tower made of local granite, remain. The entire structure was modified on several occasions as of 1805, culminating in the neoclassical extension of 1832, which resulted in the current building which is 37m long and 21m wide, with a dome that reaches 21m high. Inside, you can see images of Sant Salvador and Santa Coloma, both by Esteve Monegal, as well as sculptures by Josep Martí i Sabé, a recognised local sculptor, draughtsman and painter.

It is located in the centre of the town, in the oldest part, next to Farners Square and at the edge of the commercial hub. It is the point that experiences most movement in the town, and is an important space for events such as the Ratafia Festival, the Ratafia Herb Market or the Catalan Revolt Festival, among others. Here around the church and Farners Square is where the Monday market is held.

Practical information: can be visited. The church will remain closed except for when mass is celebrated.
