Palau-Saverdera

The village has experienced significant growth over recent years as a consequence of the increase in second homes and the considerable number of people who choose to live in this village all-year round. Numerous megalithic monuments are spread throughout the municipal area, bearing witness to life here during prehistoric times. Examples of these include the Mas Bofill dolmen and the La Febrosa dolmen.

The old windmill, a watchtower built between the 16th-17th centuries, belongs to the hamlet of Torrelles and stands within the lands of the Aiguamolls de l’Empordà Natural Park.

We should make note of the Sant Joan church, an 11th century Romanesque place of worship with remarkable paintings that date to the same period and Sant Onofre chapel which stands at 400 m altitude, constituting an impressive vantage point over the Ampurdan plain. It has remained there since the 14th century but the current building is from the 17th century.

The castle (Can Mèssio) was built between the 14th and 16th centuries. Only the remains of the old walled enclosure and three towers can now be observed. The highlight of these remains is the Hour tower with the public clock.

The Neolithic settlement of Ca n’Isach was occupied in three different phases, of which the Ampurdan group (4100 – 3400 BC) is very well represented. Excavation work has been carried out and one of the original cabins has been rebuilt. It is well explained through the informative panels, and the view over the plain gives an understanding of the strategic origin of this spot.
