Sant Roc

San Roque, the dog’s

Sant Roc was born in Montpellier in the late 13th century, he made pilgrimages around the world and he devoted most of his life to cure the plague victims. A legend has it that Saint Roque arrived in Barcelona to treat those suffering from an outbreak of plague that infested the city; But he also went flying to get sick and to avoid the danger he could infect other people, he was thrown out from the house where he was staying. It is said that A dog felt pity for him and licking his wound it cured him.
