Torroella de la Fluvia

The highlights of Torroella de Fluvia are the zone known as La Força, the area of Mas Palol, and the outlying hamlets of Vilacolum and Sant Tomas de Fluvia.  La Força was walled around the 13th c.  The great flood of 1421 destroyed much of the town, leaving a layer of sediment behind that was built upon in the 1500s creating the current town center.  The capella de Sant Sebastia was located in the area of Ca l’Albanya, but dismantled to refurbish the old tower.

The Esglesia de Sant Genis was on the grounds of Mas Palol, but it has been incorporated into the modern edifices.  There are caves on the margins of the river banks here.

At Sant Tomas, there once stood a church, Sant Marti de Canya, which has since been dismantled.  It sat just to the northeast.  Sant Tomas has definite Roman origin from many remains found in the center of the village, including a portion of wall.

The Festa Major is held the last weekend of August.
