Medieval Watch Tower & Church

As mentioned in the previous post, our trail ride down the mountain in the Cataluña region of Spain led us to this medieval watch tower and church.  The Torre de Riner, built in the 13th century used to be quite tall, but as years passed, the stone from the tower was used to construct this local church. 

Such a hidden treasure in the mountains, far from the massive hordes of tourists, secluded on the mountain top, with a local equestrian as the keeper of the keys.

Maintained annually by Monks, it is in wonderful condition.

We were thrilled to discover a part of history coupled with the beauty of the country in this serene and tranquil spot.
