Church

This building is in the Romanesque and Baroque styles. It still conserves the Lombard apse and apsidioles from the 11th century, and the capitals on the 12th-century façade were restored once the war was over. The volume of the current church, which is topped with a bell gable, dates from the Baroque enlargement in the 18th century. The façade had been decorated with Gothic sarcophagi, and the inside of the church, currently clad in exposed stone, had been presided over by a Baroque altar made by the Pujols, a family of sculptors related to Verdaguer’s mother. The temple still conserves the baptismal font where the poet was christened.

Església
En arribar a la porta reixa da del fossar, girí els ulls enrere i adéu-siau diguí plaers del món no us vull tastar; altres més dolços i purs me criden, a què no puc fer el sord, i ja no só més vostre.
