The mediaeval necropolis in Sant Esteve de Canapost

An archaeological excavation carried out by Forallac Town Council in the church cemetery of Sant Esteve de Canapost revealed 85 anthropomorphic (human-shaped) tombs made from slabs and 8 sarcophagi sculpted in sandstone, very typical of this area.

Pottery casseroles and Saint James shells were also found, brought from Santiago de Compostela by a pilgrim more than 600 years ago.
