Torre del Compte
Elevation: 497 m
Area: 19,50 km²
This Renaissance style stone building dates from 1574 and has some outstanding elements on its façade: triangular pediments over the windows on the main floor and three gargoyles, two of which are zoomorphic, while the third is a woman’s body giving birth and screaming.
‘CASA FERRER’ OR ‘CASA DEL CONDE’
This stately home dates from the 17th century and is a perfect example of Renaissance civil architecture made of stone. The building also houses several remarkable details, such as the wrought iron window bars and the family’s coat of arms..
ERMITA DE SAN JUAN
This hermitage is located on the outskirts of the town in an area surrounded by 100 year old cypresses. The simple stone construction dates from 1609 and was built in the Gothic-Renaissance style with a single nave and polygonal chancel.
IGLESIA PARROQUIAL DE SAN PEDRO MÁRTIR
The temple was constructed in ashlar stone and has three naves. The church was originally built in the 14th century, but was extended in the 18th century, which is why there are two such differentiated sections: the Gothic central part and the additional naves on both sides with a Baroque style four-level bell tower.
A larger group of stately homes is found in Torre del Compte as a result of the development of Renaissance civil architecture in the 16th and 17th centuries. This building was constructed in ashlar stone and has four floors. An ogee window and a zoomorphic gargoyle are the most distinguishing elements on the outside.
PORTAL DE LES CREUS
The portal is located in the south of the town. Of the six original gateways in the wall, this is the only one that is still complete. The doorway is a semicircular voussoir arch, finished off with seven battlements, one of which features the village’s coat of arms.
