IMPORTANT'S NUCLEUS

CITY COUNCIL.jpg (40063 bytes)   QUEROL - The Querol's nucleus is the most western part of the term, where we shall find the castle even though it is a little by spoiled because of the historical events. In 1835, during a carlile war, the castle was destroyed. The church of Santa Maria's originary of the XII century, was expanded in later periods. The bell tower has a squared floor, with large windows and pyramidal roof.

   VALLDOSSERA - The Sanctuary appears researched since 1162. In 1869 the parrochial Montagut headquarters were moved to Valldossera. During the Civil War, the church suffered some notable damages. It has a rectangular floor with flat apse and it is covered of tile. The façane presents a symmetrical composition, with a main door of arc and a wall bell tower. This sanctuary gives the name to the East zone of the municipality.
