Description

Sant Martí Vell church was built before the 10th century using ashlars, with a single naveand a single apse with a triump halarch. Later, a sacristyand a hay loft were added, hiding part of the front wall. The references of this temple are limited. One of the first ones dates from 1256, in a homage made by the bishop of Girona to a knight called Ponç de Bach. Stilltoday, Sant Martí Vell church hides enigmas due to the lack of documentation and historic references available.
