Atop the Puig de Missa hill behind the beaches is the charming little Parish Church of Santa Eulalia. The church first began life as a small chapel in 1302. Later rebuilt and fortified to protect the town during turbulent times. Visitors making the climb to the hill’s summit are rewarded with wonderful views over the town and out to sea.
