Very beautiful Baroque church for the virgin of La Mercè which is the one venerated of the city. The holiday is from September 22 to 24, with fireworks, the exit of the gegants and Castellers.
Originally in the thirteenth century the building was Gothic however, it was renovated in the eighteenth century in a late Baroque style by Josep Mas. Its interior is a single nave and houses the image of the patron saint of the city, the Virgin of 'La Mercè', a Gothic carving.
