In the church of Sant Iscle and Santa Victòria in Bàscara, portrayed in this report in Las Fotos de los Lectores de La Vanguardia, history converges.

It is dated between the 18th and 19th centuries, although with remains of the original Romanesque construction and even in this 21st century it incorporated a new element: an altarpiece in the presbytery that combines tradition with modernity thanks to a combination of iron and glass religious symbology service.

This altarpiece is the work of the Empordà painter and sculptor Josep Ministral, who gave it the title of El Cristo del Fluvià. It is a piece 8 meters high by 8 meters wide that, based on an iron structure as a base, consists of a total of 47 large format and colorful stained glass windows made from an ancient fusion technique.

Outside the church we can also see some art, such as the sculpture in the shape of a ring that we can see in these snapshots.

Documented since the year 1020, this Romanesque church was originally greatly modified in the Baroque period, for example, with the opening of the side chapels and with a polygonal apse.

As we said, history converges in this church, so that, in 1982, when removing the old cemetery, a semicircular Romanesque side door with dust cover was discovered.

The lintel, the uprights and the plinth are decorated with very simple sculpted reliefs, with animals, plant motifs and heraldic shields, Romanesque in structure but quite late, probably from the 14th century.
