Sant Roc Recreation Area is located in the municipal boundary of Paüls, next to Sant Roc's hermitage.
It is a shade area of holm oaks with a source of several springs that come out of the rock. It is equipped with dry stone tables and benches called corros. Each corro belongs to a local family and they meet three times a year to celebrate the feast of Sant Roc, the feast of Saint Anthony and Easter Monday. Behind the hermitage there is a small playground.
The area has barbecues. For the use of these barbecues you need to apply for permission from Paüls City Council.
