Santa Maria of Salinoves Castle, s. XI

Map 

Santa Maria of Salinoves castle is located within the municipality of Olivelles near Sant Cristòfol. The building is completely in ruins. Only the northern and western walls are preserved, where you can see a very small portion of its features. Spite of the place name of the church it does not seem to correspond to the monastery church of Salinoves, for the lack of the doors that would communicate with the other monastic dependencies and which are present in the monastic churches built in the eleventh century, when Santa Maria church was built and integrated into the forms of Lombard architecture. We must consider this church with the chapel tower.
