Les Marcetes farmhouse


Farmhouse of medieval origin, which depended on the monastery of Sant Benet de Bages. Located next to the Santa Maria de la Salut sanctuary, the owners were the people who had been looking after the house, and they welcomed Ignatius and gave alms to him, as he frequented the sanctuary. According to tradition, the future saint thanked him by giving them a piece of hemp rope or belt that he carried on his pilgrim's bag. The owners of the farmhouse preserved the relic inside a silver sculpture, which eventually disappeared during the Spanish Civil War.
