La Roca - Church of la Pietat

The village of La Roca, whose layout still conforms to the walls of its medieval castle. Now mostly lost to history, the sole remnant of the walled enclosure is the chapel of La Pietat located at the top of a set of houses built on the rock which gives name to the neighbourhood , this church is also called Mare de Deu de Pelancà because it is the next to the old fortress of la Roca del Pelancà . The building was inside the walls of the castle but nothing is left. It has a rectangular ground plan covered with a barrel vault . The facade with a bell gable at the top was added later.

A unique village with a great historical past.
