Atop a hill barely a kilometre from Cistella is the Mare de Déu de Via shrine which was built in 1429 in honour of Saint Michael. The shrine was completely renovated in the 17th century with only the apse remaining from the original building. It was at this time the devotion was changed to La Mare Déu de Vida. There is a marvellous view out over a large part of L'Empordà and Cistella from the shrine.
