DESCRIPTION OF THE TOWN
Sant Antoni de Vilamajor has more than 6000 inhabitants (2021). The main town centre is Plaça de la Vila, just in front of the Town Council building, located in the magnificent farmhouse of Can Perpunter (dating from the 15th century). Close the centre there is the Local Library and the building Escoles Velles where we find the information centre and the sociocultural centre in it.
The town centre is structured around three streets full of history: Vell Street (inhabited since at least the 13th century), Nou Street and França’s street. Another meeting point for the Vilamajor’s people is Can Sauleda park, a recreation area around the Vilamajor stream. Near this area we find the Francesc Bardera space (located in the old local laundry) and the space dedicated to the Sunday market.
Close to the village there are the residential areas of the different urbanizations: Sant Julià d’Alfou, Can Miret, Les Pungoles and Can Vila. All of them offer sports areas and easy communication, with a privileged access to the natural environment that surrounds them. Sant Antoni de Vilamajor has a rich network of paths and corners full of history, such as the Romanesque church of Sant Julià d’Alfou or the old chapels of Sant Lleïr and Sant Jaume de Rifà, both also of medieval origin.
The rest of the municipality has many houses and farmhouses. These are located in idyllic landscapes of the agricultural and forested plains of different rural neighbourhoods: La Freixeneda, Alfou, Les Valls, El Pla and Vallserena.
