Not just the church but all of Baga
Oct 2019
Baga is an amazing little town, Medieval in the center, nestled in the Catalonian mountains north of Barcelona. As we do not enjoy winter or the high prices of summer tourism, we visited Spain in October. The foliage was changing and still lush green appeared. It was a beautiful time to be in this mountain village. St. Esteve, the parish church was built in the 1200s, and in the 21st century, it has been lovingly restored. For a brief view of Medieval Spain, a trip to Baga is a great treat.

Supposedly houses a piece of a cross taken on the 1st crusade
Nov 2018
I don't think this place is likely to be open when you get there. Check your schedule. We got lucky and got in, and saw a 3-D miniature mock-up of the town (perhaps as it was in the past). Interesting stories about the place. The church may be historic, but it is in no way impressive.

Medieval town is ok, nothing great
Feb 2018 • Couples
My wife and I were here on a day tour ("Three Countries in one Day" - please read my review of the tour) out of Barcelona. This was the first stop.
This is a beautiful church, although we couldn't go inside, so basically, the tour just went thru the town, let us have some time (we felt too much for what the town had to offer) to wander around, before we left.

Medieval town
Jan 2018 • Couples
Stopped in this medieval town on our way to Andorra. St. Esteve de Baga is the parish church of the town, built between the 14th and 15th centuries. Took a peek inside and looked very medieval with the stone walls. Placa Galceran de Pinos is nearby, which was built in the 13th century (see photos). Cute narrow alleyways in the older section of this town. Baga was founded in the 9th century AD and has a population of 2200 today.

Attractive stone church with impressive bell tower
Dec 2017 • Couples
I was not able to go inside the church; it may not have been open to the public at the time. But the exterior stonework of the church is very attractive and the bell tower is impressive. The immediate nearby area of this medieval town was quaint. Nice view of the mountain (can't recall the name). A couple of coffee/pastry shops are nearby.

Beautiful church in medieval Spanish town
Feb 2017 • Solo
I took a day trip from Barcelona that stopped in Baga. This church was part of the tour. Everything in Baga is old and beautiful and this church was a pleasure to see.

Quaint medieval church
Sep 2016 • Solo
The church dates back over five hundred years and is built of stone in the Gothic style. It is a fairly simple structure with a simple bell tower and is built on the edge of a cliff. A plaza outside the church offers great views over the surrounding countryside.

Worth a short stop in Baga.

Pretty church is a great OLD town
Jun 2017 • Family
Stopped here as part of a tour. Very quaint town. Quiet in June. Worth a stop. So much history in the town and church. Got coffee in a bar, and it was certainly a local place-coffee and liquor were both being served before noon.

Thank you Wilfred the Hairy
Mar 2017 • Solo
Baga is one of many charming small villages/towns scattered throughout Catalonia. Baga was founded in the 9th century when the area was re-populated by Wilfred the Hairy ... which i guess also makes him the town founder?? With a population of roughly 2000, it is easy to amble around the town taking in the sites, including Sant Esteve Church. Friendly locals and charming streets make for a pleasant afternoon stop.
