Les runes de l’església de Sant Pau Vell, de la que hi ha les primeres referències a l’any 1084, les trobem als peus del turó on hi hagué el castell de la Guàrdia. Constava d’una nau, ara esfondrada, coberta amb volta lleugerament apuntada, ampliada amb una capella lateral, coberta amb volta escarsera o d’arc rebaixat. L’any 2004 s’inicià una campanya arqueològica de neteja del conjunt del castell de la Guàrdia i l’església de Sant Pau Vell per tal de preservar les seves restes.

Constaba de una nave, ahora derrumbada, cubierta con bóveda ligeramente apuntada, ampliada con una capilla lateral, cubierta con bóveda escarzanos o de arco rebajado. En 2004 se inició una campaña arqueológica de limpieza del conjunto del castillo de la Guardia y la iglesia de Sant Pau Vell para preservar sus restos.

This is an overview of Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.

The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.

Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".

Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.

Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.

In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
