Sant Joan de l’Erm

The village can be accessed through the road that starts in Montferrer and passes by Castellbò. Touching the Pallars limits, at an altitude of 1,700 m, you can find the old site on which Sant Joan de l’Erm used to stand, as well as the remains of the old Ribalera sanctuary, situated in a passing place between the two counties, which was used by monks as a hospital for pilgrims.

It was burnt down on the 20th of December 1936, during the Civil War, and was completely destroyed. Some years later, 5 km to the South, but coinciding with the old roads communicating L’Alt Urgell and El Pallars.
