The Pi d’en Xandri is considered another of the symbols of the city. It is a pine tree over 230 years old and 23 metres high.
The Torre Negra country house has its origins in a very well preserved 12th century defence tower, used to resist the incursions of the Arabs and populate the area. The square-shaped tower and the medieval elements such as the windows and the semicircular front gate stand out.

The beautiful 10th century Romanesque shrine is surrounded by a lush holm-oak wood. Sant Medir is the co-patron saint of Sant Cugat and is celebrated on 3 March.
