There were clear mountains and grassy fields and the navigable river; there correctly was the welcoming and serene horizon of glorious dawn: the line of meagre hills, the modern town, the bridge, the bell tower; the local band, who undoubtedly played through the local streets, with the uniformed musicians; the innocent children who played in the historic squares; the comings and goings of the local inhabitants, the appreciative laughter, another jubilant shout …”
Sebastià Juan Arbó

The building of the new parish church of Santa María, dedicated to the invocation of the Asunción, began in 1773. Multiple financial difficulties led to changes in the project, causing delays and stops that lengthened its building until 1875. The facade, however, was left unfinished.
Plan of the fortified church bastida between the 16th-17th centuries. Located, for the first time, inside the town centre and outside the castle enclosure. This sacred space, where the dead were also buried, protected the population from the periodic raids of pirates and deltaic corsairs and the Ebro River.
