The rectangular layout has a nave, a semi-circular apse, a gable roof, a belfry and a later porch. The building is peculiar for the disproportion between the nave and the 17-metre high belfry. The top level of the belfry preserves one of the few examples of Romanesque sculpture in Andorra: heads carved in the centre of the double window arches.On show inside are reproductions of Romanesque mural paintings bythe master artist of Santa Coloma from the 12th century. The apse isdominated by a Christ Pantocrator surrounded by the tetramorph wherethe Archangel Michael, the church’s patron saint, merges with the symbol of Saint Matthew. The original paintings are now held by the National Art Museum of Catalonia (MNAC).[ESP « less
