The rating shows the great disappointment with the fact that the church is close almost the whole year. For me the end of June is the summer season and I am used to the fact that wherever I go, everything is open. This church is...More

I came over here knowing how peculiar this church is mainly for the Tower, and I found out a lot more about this hidden gem. I have attended a free guided tour in Catalan (they provide also in French and most likely Spanish) which covered...More

What a wonderfully creative way to reconstruct the original frescoes (video that situates them in their original space). the round bell tower is different from other Romaesque churches in Andorra and has a charm of its won.

There was not much to do or see in Andorra, as we were there before ski season. This church, however, was impressive from the outside, with a very interesting-looking tower. It was also locked. Andorra was so not the most visitor friendly place I've visited.

I decided to walk here from Andorra La Vella and it took me about 30 minutes along the river. I spotted it easily in the centre of town. It’s free to walk around but a gentleman told me it was closed to go inside. I...More

Built in 8th century it is the oldest church in Andorra. The trip from the Valle it is quite a treck, but its worth it. The church is stone and is nice with great views of the mountain.

An interesting church to be sure, especially given its age. It's located just by the main road and can be accessed via a roundabout. It was closed at the time we've visited, so check beforehand as to how to obtain a key.

This is one of the more noteworthy attractions to visit while driving through Andorra. It's free and easily accessed just 2 streets over from the main highway (CG1) at the southern edge of the town of Andorra La Vella. If you're driving, you can park...More

This seemingly very pretty little church was, like several others in the guidebook, closed. Nobody was around to open it either. I don't think Andorra likes visitors.

It's a very small stone church by the main road, we pass by the church quite often since Andorra is quite a tiny country so it's very easy to go by the church every time you go somewhere that direction. Had some pictures taken sitting...More
