Afternoon day 1: Santa Maria d'Oló
In Santa Maria d'Oló you can enjoy whiling away the hours exploring hundreds of years of history, be it wandering down beautiful old streets in the town, or a little farther out of the urban centre, searching for old country houses dotted around the area. The oldest part of Santa Maria d'Oló is found on the hillside surrounding the castle, of which remain some well-preserved walls and part of a tower, and the ‘old church’, as it's known. Though the old church as it stands dates back to the 16th century, its foundations reach back to the medieval period. Moving through time after visiting the old church you can also enjoy the ‘new church’, blessed in 1963 and built to celebrate the marriage between the Roger and Vidal families, owners of the town's first factory.
