This stunning church is hard to miss as it is situated at the top of a high hill overlooking the whole of Santa Eulalia.
Following continuous pirate attacks which destroyed much of the church, in the middle of the 16th century, a new fortified church was built with stronger defences which has stood the test of time as it is still there today.
It's a stunning church with whitewashed walls and a domed roof. The attached watch tower also dates back to the 16th century and is thought to be one of the oldest on the Pitiusas Islands.
At somepoint during the latter part of the 17th century, when pirate attacks became less of a threat, the church was extended and again used a religious building and a focal point during town festivals.
Watch out for
A steep walk up to the church could make access difficult for those with reduced mobility.
- "A great walk up here to see the pretty little church and museum and to admire the views over Santa Eulalia! We found the walk quite easy albeit a little steep at times and would have preferred to wear trainers to grip a bit better. Well worth the effort!" - Trip Advisor
- "What a lovely place, so quiet and a genuine place to visit. A nice stroll from village and lovely places to stop on way back for a drink/snack!!!" - Trip Advisor
- "We have visited the Puig on most of our visits to Santa Eulalia, We prefer to walk along the river and then the path past the water mill and then via around 100 steps to the Puig. There are nice views all around Santa Eulalia." - Trip Advisor
