In terms of religious art in the church Begues find Saint Christopher Vella built in the sixteenth century, replacing the old Romanesque church of the tenth century The style is late Gothic-Renaissance is. It was the parish church until they built a new one in the new town center. Thanks to the neighbors was saved from being burned during the Civil War and it was demolished by his poor mid twentieth century. On one side is attached the Rectory Vella, the thirteenth century and is characterized by arcaded galleries of the eighteenth century facade. The parish church of Saint Christopher was built in the mid-twentieth century to prevent displacement that meant going to that above.
We also found the hermitage of Santa Eulalia which is located on a small hill. Eighteenth century is documented, although it could be earlier, as tombs found so indicate. In this chapel is the feast of Santa Eulalia in the month of February and the Festival of Mosto the third Sunday in October when we celebrate Mass and shared traditional Santa Eulalia cokes.
The municipality is located in Can Torres, former summer residence built in the early twentieth century. It has an important modernist influence, with polychrome ceramic frieze combination of different shapes and colors. The windows are Gothic and Romanesque style and has a double portico in front. As modernist influence in the population, we also found the old slaughterhouse. It is built of stone and brick. It was restored and has had various uses.
Begues also witnessed agricultural and therefore has recorded with a list of farms that were dedicated to the field. We quote the Mas de les Planes Coll Grau Can, Can Can Vendrell Sadurní.
