  • The Church on the outside says nothing, was built almost from scratch after the war of 36. Until recently it was always closed, and they gave you the key in the Town Hall. Now they have discovered that they can charge and have schedules. I arrived, was open and paid the entrance. The Church does not have anything worthwhile, except what is not Church. On the floor there is a round opening surrounded by a balustrade, from which can be seen, under the level of the floor of the Church, a dolmen which has been there for at least 5,000 years, and that is really the center of the local popular devotion , although the devotees do not know. When they rebuilt it in the 40's of the 20th century after burning that destroyed it, no one doubted in respect and leave visible the dolmen. Equal to what had happened when he rebuilt the temple after of the Arab plunders that swept the Visigothic temple built to replace the Roman temple, which also (all) respected the dolmen. It has the undeniable magic of being a sacred place from at least 5 millennia ago. I recommend it if you believe in magic.
