The Calvary

Canet lo Roig

To the east of the town lies the Calvary, taking advantage of a mound where there’s a chapel believed to date back to the mid-18th century built in masonry and angular limestone ashlar. 

The roof is made up of a central dome over an octagonal base and a polygonal apse.

The inside features a single nave with half-pilasters holding up rounded arches supporting the dome and lateral roofing.  There are still remains of the pictorial decor on the pendentives and lateral windows as well as some remains of an old 18th century plasterwork altarpiece showing some of the attributes of the Passion framed by pebbles.
