The church of Sant Onofre was, as it is today, a suffragan diocese of the parish of Palau-saverdera by 1362. This church was originally a simple chapel built in early Romanesque style. The building was modified, repaired, and enlarged over the centuries. The church suffered damage during the Spanish Civil War, and in 1958 works began on the church’s most significant renovation and reconstructions in the last century. Sant Onofre (Saint Onuphrius) was a Hungarian hermit who, according to legend, lived and did penance here. The current building may stand on top of an underground cave, the origin of the legend, a possibility considering the church’s rocky foundation.
