Olot was a very important production centre of religious images. Christian art consolidated its prestige everywhere and was maintained for twenty years as the leader and the only workshop of religious imagery in Olot. Already in 1900 was founded the Sacred Heart and, two years later the Religious Arts. Later were opened El Renacimiento, El Arte Olotense, El Buen Pastor, El Inmaculado Corazón de Maria, El Arte Católico..., among others.
