Church of el Carme

“The Convent of the Discalced Carmelites in Camprodon was dedicated to the Immaculate Conception. It was founded in the 14th century. The Abbot of the Monastery of Sant Pere participated in its foundation by granting the lands in exchange for the Carmelites being obliged to assist with certain matters at the Monastery, in addition to earning an income. The convent always stood in the shadow of Sant Pere. At the end of the century, it entered a long decline partly caused by a plague and then by the War of the Harvesters. It was finally closed down in 1835.

The Church of Carme formed part of this convent complex. Gothic in architectural style, it has a single nave with side walkways. The side chapels house the images that are carried every Holy Friday in the Sants Misteris Procession.

This temple is connected by a covered bridge, now closed, to the house known as Cal Marqués, the old residence of Pere Ribas, owner of a factory in Setcases.

Located in the town of Bajo, this church was used as a Carmelites convent.”
