Overview
More
Open from 15 July to 15 September. This church, Romanesque in origin, was built sometime before the 12thcentury. 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).

We passed this on our way to Andorra la Vella, but didn't get out. The whole area is amazing. But, our driver didn't stop to visit it.

This church was a nice little stop on our tour of Andorra. We couldn't go inside, but just being able to examine the exterior architecture was fascinating. I really appreciated seeing how the people of Andorra care enough about their history to make their infrastructure...More
