A symbol of independence

At the highest point in the village of Santa Eugènia, you will find the parish church, Església Parroquial del Santa Eugènia.

In 1523, the inhabitants of Santa Eugènia stood up to the bishop requiring a church to be built, instead of having to walk to the bigger town of Santa Maria del Cami.

At this point, the congregation of the village had grown rapidly the past years, and the general wealth of the town was increasing.

The bishop, Joan Vich i Manrique, had no choice but to grant the inhabitant’s wish, and the construction of the first real church of Santa Eugènia could be initiated.

The church you look at today is an expanded version of the first temple, which was done in the years between 1699 and 1716.

The Puríssima chapel was built in 1839-41, the bell tower in 1850 and the transept between 1863-69.

The church was declared parish church in 1913, at the time of Santa Eugènia’s independence as a municipality.
