It houses engravings by Adrià Gual. Fragments of Roman ceramics have been found in the vicinity of the chapel, along with a coin of the Emperor Constantine and several tombs.
Les Alegries Shrine
It was the first parish church of the town of Lloret. It stands 2.5km from the centre and it was the parish church from when it was consecrated in 1079 to 1522. It has a Romanesque bell tower and frescoes by Calandria. In Lloret, the tradition was that the sea used to cover the entire plain, as far as a place called Les Alegries.
