Historical heritage

Santa María del Castell

The church of Santa María del Castell is located at the highest point of the city, facing a square formerly occupied by the castle, a beautiful viewpoint over the Ribera de Sió and the Plan de Urgell, protected by an iron railing. It is the only preserved building that was part of the old enclosure of the Castle of Cubells.

Built in the twelfth century, it consists of a single nave covered with a barrel vault with a pointed profile. To the east, the nave is decapitated with a semicircular apse, and in the lower section it opens two arcosolios, emptied to the side walls, which widen the building's layout.

The door opens on the south facade and is the most striking element of the whole. Like most of the so-called Lleida schools, it is framed by an outgoing body, crowned by a cornice supported by sculpted corbels. The cover is formed by six groups of decorated archivolts and a dust cover and six pairs of monolithic columns in each of the uprights, finished in six capitals also carved on each side.
Inside, the image of the Virgen de la Leche is preserved and venerated . Alabaster piece of Gothic style.

The church of Sant Pere

The parish church of Sant Pere is located in the center of the town. It was built in the XIII and XIV centuries in the style of transition from Romanesque to Gothic, on the old Romanesque church of Sant Pere.

It is a magnificent building with a single nave with side chapels of Gothic tracery and linked by interesting sculptural keys. The enclosures of the chapels are open between the wall and the abutments, well marked on the outside. The pointed barrel vault of the nave rests on corbels with stylized motifs of Mudejar taste. It has undergone several transformations such as the bell tower and a new facade of neoclassical style (XVIII) of little merit.

Today, in the interior, it has a pulpit with polychrome stone (15th century), the image of the Holy Christ, in polychrome wood (15th century) and the image of the Virgin of Hope, a magnificent Romanesque carving in polychrome wood.
