Breda is a small town located in the eastern places of Montseny, in the region of the Forest. There is evidence of Breda from the eleventh century, when it was a rural village, but it can not be considered a population entirely settled until 200 years later.

In 1038, the Viscounts of Gerona, Guerau Ermessenda Cabrera and decided to found a monastery in the village, prompting definitively your situation. They kept the Benedictine monks and a church was built. That was when they built the church of Santa Maria de Breda, which is not conserved, but their bases were used to different buildings to the present that gives space to the city council and the Municipal Museum "Josep Aragay". Even so, it retains a frescoed apse of the Romanesque and eighteenth century bell.

The church that are today known as the "Cathedral of the Forest", by the length of his ship and the grandeur of the bell. It is considered the oldest building in the village. It is accompanied by one of the four sides of the cloister, the only thing that has remained to this day. Within the grounds of the monastery, also found the Patio of the Abbey, which is a clear example of medieval courtyard.
