Santa Maria de Palau is located on the edge of a hill. The church and the parish belonged to the priory of Santa Maria de Meià in the Eleventh century. Recently the church has been restored and today it is well-preserved with some worship during the year.
The western sector where there was the terraced rectory, had produced important alterations in the facade. The structure responds to a basilical ground plan with three naves divided into three sections. The decoration of the facades is resolved with a large compositional rigor that is only altered in the main apse, where a central window interrupts the decoration of a mistake in the distribution panels and its Distribution with the windows. The church of Santa Maria de Palau is a building that fully meets the forms of Lombard architecture of the eleventh century.
