The Parish Church of the Transfiguration of the Lord is located on the side of Sant Salvador mountain. It overlooks the entire village. This Neo-Gothic building was started in 1573 to replace the small 13th century ancient Church. The chevet was finished in the 17th century, and the vault completed in 1816. The attached bell tower dates from the 17th century. Two portals give access to the building. The main portal known as Portal de ses Dones (Portal of Women) dates from the 19th century. It is decorated by the architect Bartomeu Ferrà. We must highlight here the modernist style of the pointed portal and the big rose window. The second portal is known as Portal dels Homes (Portal of Men). This entrance is still unfinished. The exterior structure features side buttresses and a lateral dome that decorates the building. Once inside the building, the visitor will find up to 14 small chapels dedicated to different Saints. We must highlight here the chapel dedicated to The Rosary. The altarpiece was installed in 1906 and represents different scenes of The Transfiguration of The Lord. Other important elements are the 17th century baptismal font, the 19th century pipe organ and the impressive stained glass windows.
