    The church of Sant Pere

    The Parish church of Sant Pere dated back from an indefinite time in the 17th century or beginning of the 18th century.
    The latest news about the existence of the castle situated in the same location where the parish church of Nostra Senyora del Coll( dated from 1628) is raised nowadays. It was first mentioned as parish in 1758 and it only remains the top of this romanesque building. It was partially demolished in 1841, when by royal decree it was prohibited to bury in the town. Then the cemetery was moved to this location.

    the walled city

    It is a walled enclosure, with three circular towers. Two of them dated back from the high Middle Ages period in the 10th and 11th century and the other one from the low Middle Ages period.
    All of them were modified and strengthened during the Pallars war against Fernando el Católico in 1484.
    The different gates which defend the town from attacks are related to these towers.
