A martyrÔÇÖs roadside shrine

The earliest evidence we have for a building in this area is from the 4th century, when it was still part of the Roman Empire. Relations between Christians and the Roman Empire were not always smooth. The Christians, who refused to perform the state religious rituals demanded of every citizen, were deemed to pose a threat to the emperorÔÇÖs authority. For this reason, many emperors persecuted Christians, including Diocletian. In 303 CE, he launched an attack that would claim the life of Sant Feliu, or Saint Felix, to whom this church is dedicated. Afterwards, a martyrium was erected here to commemorate him, and the many other Christians who died, probably at the side of the Via Augusta, the road that passed through the city of Girona.
