The chapel has been known by different names, such as Església Vella (Old Church), Mare de Déu Antiga and, later, Mare de Déu de les Alegries.

Why go?

You cannot miss the Roman bell tower and the fresco paintings by Calandria.

Outside the chapel you can see some centenary cork oak trees and a small display of the future Exhibition of Farming Tools of Les Alegries.

History

The land on which the chapel was built was donated by Lady Sicardis of Lloret de Mar, together with a surrounding area measuring 34 paces in diameter to be used as the cemetery.
