The Sant Marc and Santa Maria Church

The Sant Marc and Santa María church is located in Encamp, in front of the communal cemetery. It is of Romanesque origin and had to be reformed during the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries with a new nave and different apse. The building was declared of cultural interest in June 2003.

Like most of the churches in the country, it consists of a single rectangular nave and a two-eyed belfry with semicircular arches. Today, there are still several fragments of Romanesque paintings that were found on the walls of the church.

Location: To get to the Sant Marc and Santa Maria church there are different routes. The easiest way is from the roundabout that leads to the parish of Encamp. Take the third exit in the direction of the old way of Escaldes and make the first turn to the right (by the Riberaigües road). Straight ahead, a few meters away, you will find the church.
