Sant Julià de Boada

Route POI
Index card


You are in the small village of Sant Julià de Boada, in front of its church which is a pre-Romanesque jewel of the Empordà. It was built in the ninth century and subsequently extended during the Romanesque period. Romanesque paintings were taken from its interior and are preserved in the Museum of Art of Girona, and there are still some traces in a poor condition.

Although it is now once again a church, it was abandoned in the eighteenth century because of its poor condition and in the nineteenth century was turned into a cellar and stable! This situation is surreal seen from now, and even though it was declared a National Monument in 1931, it was not until 1982 that restoration began.

Its interior is well worth visiting. You can find information in the “Advice” section.
