Also known as Santa Maria del Pi, Església del Pi is one of the churches most representative of Catalan Gothic architecture. The structure dates from the 14th century, but it is said that a Roman temple once existed on the site and possibly also a mosque in later years, although there are no remains from either. The church's square façade is flanked with two small polygonal towers and decorated with an oversized central rose window over an intricately carved Gothic portal.
