The sanctuary of "Els Àngels"
Els Àngels is situated at a height of 485 m., on a peak called Puig Alt, to the north of the Gavarres hills.
Its origins are uncertain, but there was possibly a previous constuction on the same site. The present-day building dates from the beginning of the 15th century.
The view on a clear day, when the tramontana wind blows, is exceptional. It is possible to enjoy panoramic views of all the Girona counties: the Gavarres hills
, the Costa Brava
, the Baix Empordà plain
, the Alt Empordà
, the Roda hills
, the Alberes
, the Garrotxa
, the Pyrenees
, the Guilleries
, the Montseny
and the Selva plain
