Sant Feliu de Codines (Catalan pronunciation: [ˈsam fəˈɫiw ðə kuˈðinəs]) is a municipality in the comarca of the Vallès Oriental in Catalonia, Spain. It is linked by a local road to Caldes de Montbui and to Centelles.

The town was first mentioned in 1059, when Mir Geribert was made Baron of Montbui by Ramon Berenguer I, Count of Barcelona. It gained its independence from the barony in 1793 by a decree of Charles IV.
