The Parish of Sant Esteve in Vilanova del Vallès (also known as the Sanctuary of Santa Quitèria) is one of the places with the longest history in Vilanova del Vallès. Its documentary remains date back to the 10th century.
The current church (apart from previous vestiges) is made up of three architectural styles: a Romanesque part (base and bell tower), a Gothic part (central nave and altar of Santa Quiteria) and a Renaissance part (façade and nave of the Santissim or the altar of the Roser).
Apart from its main patron saint, Saint Stephen, and the co-patron Saint Sebastian, whose two festivals are celebrated in his honor, the gathering of Saint Quiteria for the second Easter is also celebrated.
Enjoy a charming environment and a delightful visit over part of the Vallès Oriental, with views of Montseny, Montserrat, Sant Llorenç del Munt and the Puigmal peak in the Pyrenees.
Part of Vilanova del Vallès is included in the Parc de la Serralada Litoral, and in our municipality is where we will find the highest point of this park, with the hill of Céllecs of maximum height (534 m), crowned by the remains of an Iberian village and the forest that extends to the western slopes, within the limits of the Parc de la Serralada Litoral.
