Vall de Boí

Where the Pyrenees touch the sky

Catalan Romanesque at its best

The Romanesque heritage of Vall de Boí is exceptional due to the existence of a large number of churches of the same architectural style concentrated in such a small area. Until well into the last century the valley remained quite isolated, which prevented the arrival of builders, artists, architects or priests willing to make changes to the original works. Thanks to this fact, these churches have been preserved over time with only minor alterations, meaning that their original conception has hardly changed.

Eight Romanesque churches and one hermitage, all of them considered World Heritage by UNESCO
