Ways and pilgrimages around chapels
By precipices, mountains and plateaus of the region of Terra Alta, we discover a territory with lots of chapels, between old houses now uninhabited and some dry stone huts. When spring arrives, many villages in the region celebrate pilgrimages, halfway between the popular festivity and religious devotion. This route allows you to discover the charming hermitage of Sant Pau in Vilalba dels Arcs, troglodyte type and located under a large cave on the outskirts of the town. It also goes by the chapel of Sant Francisco, with neoclassical characteristics and a semicircular large gateway, built in the 18th century by the villagers of La Fatarella. On the other band, in the Hermitage of Santa Magdalena of Berrús -today an abandoned village- believers of Riba-roja d'Ebre, La Pobla de Massaluca and Vilalba dels Arcs have veneration. The origin of the devotion leaves from an epidemic of wich all inhabitants of Berrús fled and settled near towns. The route allows travel plains and wild ravines and contemplates some sources.
