  • It is from the outside and especially feel part of the Tower's building. In the Church had become very modern repair many times after. With a colorful stained glass, rear side Windows are in the shape of flowers, rustic, it was beautiful.

  • A restored Romanesque church has to preserve the original spirit, restoration do not think that it was lucky. There are other churches smaller but more faithful to the original Romanesque.

  • One mjestra of churches that exist in this country. From my humble and atheistic opinion, there are best for the country, churches like the one of S. Joan. Step to walk beside the Valira or you see the small stone bridge's side or supply of 70 ° from a little further up.

  • Beautiful church from the outside which appears especially dramatic against the mountains when seen from Placa del Poble. Tried to go inside on Sunday morning but I was gestured away as soon as I opened the main door! Looks better from the outside than inside in any case.
  • Compared to other ancient churches, this one is just okay. In my opinion it's prettier from the outside than the inside.
  • Loved the old, vernacular details - and stone structure of the building
  • Old photo from 1993.
  • My wife has been to to Andorra. She loved the country and remembers that while visiting the church shown a choir came in and sang. This was such a happy memory for her.
