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.
The Romanesque Center of Vall de Boí is currently in charge of managing the whole of the Romanesque heritage of the valley, which was declared World Heritage by UNESCO in the year 2000.The entity is not only in charge of the administration of the ensemble, but also of making it known to the public by means of the permanent exhibition at the Centre’s headquarters, as well as the guided tours, the daily opening of the buildings and the edition of information materials.
