MONUMENTS AND PLACES OF INTEREST

   VILARDIDA - Ancient village that belongs to Montferri and Vila-rodona's municipalities. The first news were from 1009, when it was the domain of the Barcelona's bishops. The Santa Maria's Chapel was built in the XVIII century. CAL TUDÓ, known as well as Vilardida's tower or castle, was the house of the nobles of the village at the XVIII century.

   PUIGTINYÓS CASTLE - Located on the Còdol precipice, belonged to the barons of Castellvell, but in 1233 went over to Santes Creus and at the XIV century was bought by Arnau, a noble from Figuerola. On the XV century it was sold to Guillermina of Bembell until when by inheritance passed through to the Rocamora family, and then to the Pagès family. It is the building where the restaurant of the village is placed.DOOR OF THE SANCTUARY.jpg (70125 bytes)

   MONTSERRAT'S SANCTUARY - This sanctuary is a work of the modernist architect J.M. Jujol. It was started to be built in 1926, he left it without finishing it. The town council took up again the works of the Sanctuary, the 16th July 1990. The building was located on the mountain range, next to the village, and it is visible from different places of the region. This work was thought starting from the natural forms looking from landscape references. The rounded forms reproduce the Montserrat mountains.
