EGLISE SAINT JEAN LE VIEUX
Saint Jean le Vieux is the primitive church of the city. In 1025 on May 16th, Gaufred II Count of Roussillon and Béranger Bishop of Elne, celebrate the consecration of the new church dedicated to Saint Jean Baptiste. In 1102, Gislabert II established here the canonical life and in 1116 Arnau Gaufred built a hospital for the poor (Saint Jean). During the first half of XIII century, the building underwent extensive works: the beautiful gate sculpted with a Christ in majesty is dated from this period. The church can't be visited but you can admire its door from the church square beside the cathedral.
