Set in the lovely Parc Vallparadis, these 3 Romanesque churches built close together are called The Seu d'Egara, or The See of Egara. In Romanesque times they were a bishopric for the town of Egara, now known as Terrassa. These fairly small, well-preserved churches not only have some remnant of Byzantine frescoes, but they were constructed on top of Roman ruins. In several parts of the complex the ground has been excavated to show the Roman ruins and glassed over so that you can be walking through the Romanesque building and looking directly down into the Roman one. A film explaining the complex is shown in English, Spanish, and Catalan. Complete the afternoon with a visit to the nearby castle and a stroll through the well-landscaped and inviting Parc Vallparadis.

Worth visiting. Lovely outside but if you want to have a peak inside make sure you are there before 1pm.

Set of three little church buildings that are in excellent shape. There is also a museum where we listened to a short video that outlined the history of the site (in English). The museum is also right on top of the excavation of some of the ruins including waterways, and I think burial grounds. Don't miss the views from the deck on the top floor of the museum. Great views of the site including the brick work in the courtyard where you can see where others are buried. The churches are not specatular by European cathedral standards but are well taken care of and great to see. Amazing to see something so old so well preserved (my wife says that about me!)
