Sant Bartomeu de Pincaró is a beautiful example of 12th-century Romanesque churches, very characteristic of this area between La Garrotxa and L'Empordà. It houses a single nave with a semicircular apse to the east, a descending pointed arch entrance and a narrow belfry to the western façade. Part of the north wall is originally from an earlier church. It has preserved the old baptismal font and another rectangular one. Unfortunately, the bolt and other Romanesque ironwork elements on the door recently disappeared.
