Church of Sant Romà

The Church of Sant Romà is a Lombard Romanesque building built in the 11th century and consecrated in 1062. It was seriously affected by an earthquake in the 15th century and was later renovated and enlarged. Since the construction of the Sau reservoir in the 1960s, it has been submerged underwater with the rest of the village, but in times of drought, it can be accessed.

Vic Cathedral

Vic Cathedral was first built during the episcopate of Bishop Oliba de Vich (1018 and 1046) in Romanesque style and was consecrated in 1038 by Archbishop Wilfred of Narbonne. The bell tower and the crypt date from this period. The Gothic cloister, with its colonnade and capitals, dates from the 14th century. There are also Baroque elements such as the chapel of San Bernardo. However, the largest extension took place between 1781 and 1803, during which time the church was remodelled by Josep Moretó i Codina, who gave it its current neoclassical character.
