The Església de Sant Esteve (Church of Saint Stephen) is neoclassical and dates back to the seventeenth century. With a single nave, its façade is quite simple, with an open rose window above the triangular tympanum that tops the entrance door. There are chapels between the buttresses, a polygonal apse, cross-ribbed vaults and a semicircular arch over the entrance covered by two Ionic columns. Numerous cane-shaped pergolas try to interfere with the purity of this Renaissance work’s lines. The belltower, which definitely once had a twofold function as a watchtower, rises up today still with no foundation over the altar of the Mare de Déu del Roser.
