“The wonderful town of Cellera de Ter”, points out Mar Rovira Batlle when sharing her photographs in The Photos of the Readers of La Vanguardia.
La Cellera is located in the region of La Selva, to the right of the river Ter. In addition to the municipal capital, it includes the nuclei of El Pasteral, Pladamont and Pladavall.
It is a mountainous place and is located in the eastern part of Les Guilleries.
In addition, there is another area that is flatter and there is the river Ter and the Osor stream and, in this place, the population made the settlement before the 9th century.
In its surroundings you can find elements, even prehistoric, such as the funerary tomb, remains of an Iberian settlement or the Font del Baci site.
After being under the domain of counts and mayors, in the 18th century Cellera de Ter obtained its municipal independence. Although it has always been present on the ecclesiastical scene and this can be seen in the church of Santa Maria de Sales de la Cellera, built in 833.
The church has undergone successive reforms, since it was the scene of an earthquake in the fifteenth century.
The structure is Gothic and the façade is Baroque, but the recently restored porch stands out, with stone columns and a wooden roof.
This area experienced the French War, the Carlist Wars and the Civil War. And it is in these places where you can enjoy places like the Cuevas d’en Puig Guia.
