The Hermitage of Saint Vincent of Esclet

The hermitage of San Vicente de Esclet is attached to the Vilabella farmhouse. It is a simple hermitage with two floors in the shape of a rectangular tower and a gabled roof. We find a small one-eyed belfry with a small bell on it.

Documentation from the 10th century has been found indicating the existence of a fortified house in which the own cereal harvests were collected, such as the censuses in kind (cereals and wine) of the farmhouses under the domain of the Monastery of Sant Feliu de Guíxols.

Probably during the confiscation of Mendizábal, in the 19th century, Mas Vilabella changed owners and the building was remodeled, giving it the shape it has today.
