This was the name given to the means of doing justice in the towns of the area. The Pellerich is a large octagonal stone that is installed on the edge of the town square. In the center of the stone was a ring with a chain and a shackle to restrain and expose to public shame adulteresses, wrongdoers, etc. Memories of the Pellerich family are preserved in neighboring Mirambel, Olocau del Rey and Culla, the latter two in the province of Castellón.
