ARCADES.jpg (60896 bytes)

    We may find preserved arcades and wall fragments of many streets which indicate us the existence of an ancient villa enclosure.

    Of all the monuments of the village, the Vella's or the Sang's churches, from the XVI and the XVII century, highlight. They are a Romanesque construction, made of stone and with one and only nave.

    The Santa Anna's Convent, that was active until 1835, is under the Calvary's mountain.
