A Historic Town on the Edge of Granollers

Canovelles is a municipality in the comarca of El Vallès Oriental located in the centre of the Congost valley.

It was a village until the 1960s but underwent so much population growth during the period of massive immigration that it now has a population of over 16,000 inhabitants and is effectively a suburb of Granollers.

The origins of the town date back at least to the medieval period as it was originally a cluster of houses around the Romanesque church of Sant Feliu.

Canovelles is currently know for its Sunday market, which is one of the largest in Catalonia.
