Sant Jordi de Puigseslloses

This chapel was built in 1477 and reformed and enlarged in 1883. It has a twofold historical value: first, the poet Jacint Verdaguer celebrated his first mass there (1870), and secondly, it is one of the handful of churches devoted to the patron saint of Catalonia, Saint George. The toponym Puigseslloses comes from the megalithic dolmen that surmounts the hill.

La vall hermosa de Vic planera n’és i rodona, planera com un diner, rodona com una mola, sobretot per qui la veu des del cim de Puigseslloses, que d’eixa plana és lo cor, lo botó d’aqueixa roda.
Verdaguer, Jacint. «Lo dolmen de Sant Jordi» dins Aires del Montseny. TO III. Barcelona 2005. Proa. p. 1251
