1. Hospital vell

Welcome to Sant Celoni, a town full of history that you will learn about on this this route. Walking along its streets will take you back in time to discover the origin and evolution of this town which in ancient times was already an important meeting point for merchants and travellers heading for Barcelona or Girona on the route that passed through the town.

Sant Celoni is currently a prime location due to its geographical position, giving visitors access to different places of natural and geographical interest as well as a rich cultural and gastronomic offer.

The origin of Sant Celoni dates back to the middle ages, when the first inhabitants lived in manor houses grouped around the parish church of Sant Martí de Pertegàs, the first to be built in the town.

In the 9th century, the lords of Montseny built a chapel dedicated to Sant Celdoni beside the route from Barcelona to Girona. This name, which became the place name of the original village, is that of a Christian martyr.
The good geographical location of the chapel and the support of the military order of the Hospital of Sant Joan of Jerusalem, who owned of the village since 1151, encouraged the growth of houses around it, its fortification and the creation of a market outside the walls in the 12th century.

The growth of the village led to the building of gateways that were shut to protect from possible attacks by neighbouring lords as well as bandits and criminals. These were moved several times to adapt to the new configuration of the town, until they finally disappeared in the 19th century.
