The Casa Cremada building

(7th-11th Century - Pre-Romanesque/Early Medieval)

Remains of an old building that has been identified as a possible pre-Romanesque church. Rectangular in shape, the walls were made with unworked stones from the surrounding area, arranged so they interlock and bound with clay. Given the width and the dimensions of the building, it probably was covered with a vault, knocked down today. On the south side one can see the attached remains of another later building.

Both the orientation of the main building and the constructive technique indicate an ancient chronology. The hypothesis that gives the attribution of its use as a temple is based on its orientation and the fact that it is a construction with a single elongated and narrow nave, with access from the south side, these being characteristic features of the buildings of the ancient rural cult.

The walls, which can be seen attached to the south side of this first building, were added later. The building technique used is more irregular and austere than in the other building, the stones are smaller and only the blocks that form the corners have any kind of reworking. The building, in the absence of an archaeological intervention that could confirm it, is thought to be part of an ancient monastic cell, with a church and its rooms on the side.
