ROMANESQUE TOWER 13th-14th centuries
This is the only architectural feature remaining from the original church of Sant Vicenç. When the new church was built in the 17th century, the Romanesque Tower was left standing to be used for building a new parish bell tower. In the meanwhile, it served as the municipal bell tower and over the years has become one of the landmarks of Llançà. A new parish bell tower was eventually built in the early 20th century.
The Romanesque Tower is nearly 21 metres in height and its exterior measurements are 6 metres from north to south and 5.5 metres from east to west.
To visit the Tower, ask for the key at the Casa de Cultura.
