Santa Coloma de Farners

Guide to the Municipalities
The capital of la Selva is located in a green area full of thick forests, between Montseny and las Guilleries. The waters of the municipality have many medicinal properties, a fact that has led to the construction of several thermal spas.

Santa Coloma de Farners offers this heritage by means of an itinerary that includes the spa and its springs and which, along with the route of the ten chapels, is one of the foundations of its attraction for tourists.

The city is also well known for being the birthplace of Salvador Espriu, one of Catalonia's most famous contemporary poets.
