Allepuz Ratchet

The Trinquete de Allepuz is located in the square of the same name. The building has two floors. On the first floor, there is a commodities exchange – trinquet, with two semicircular arches enclosed by a wall, almost entirely forming a bench. On the central pillar, at the base of the first arch, there is a curious marking known in the area as “Miss“which is the representation of a Calvary.

The upper floor was the old children’s school, now used as a bar for the Festivities Commission and a meeting place.

Traditionally, in the trinquetes, hand ball was played and they are very abundant throughout the region.
