The history of Sant Joan les Fonts and its surroundings

During the feudal period Sant Joan les Fonts, so called because of the large number of springs in the municipality, was part of the county of Besalú. The municipality was originally called Begudà and in the fifties it changed its name to Sant Joan les Fonts. The great demographic expansion of the town came during the 18th century, thanks to the first waves of migration that arrived in Catalonia.
