Architectural heritage

•Parish Church

The parish church is dedicated to San Juan Bautista. It occupies a dominant position overlooking all housing and is surrounded by a mass of trees, the tower alone standing up over the treetops when plant growth is at its densest.

The church is rectangular and traces of its early Romanesque construction are evident. Access to the sombre porch, which contains a small stone mill crowned by an iron cross, is via a double arch. The tower stands out from the rest of the building .

This was used as a settlement for various peoples throughout the centuries right through to the dark period of the Middle Ages .
