Sant Quirze de Colera

(Rabós d’Empordà, Alt Empordà, Catalonia)

The first, necessary evaluation and interpretation of the monastic complex of Sant Quirze de Colera (Rabós d’Empordà, Alt Empordà) have been done in the frame of numerous excavations carried out during architectural restoration works, were major results of work undertaken over 1997-2012. Subsequently, as part of the ECLOC project / Ecclesiae, coemeteria et loci (saec VIII-XI), further essential steps were established for the understanding of the chronostratigraphic and architectural sequence of the various buildings of this Benedictine monastery, located on the southern slopes of the eastern Pyrenees.

Various methods have been employed in order to integrate, recover and interpret data from the previous excavations. The information was digitalised, geo-referenced and vectorized, now all is included in a database and GIS platform.
