  • Romanesque church in the Centre of Andorra, if you go to the "Barri antic" the you can observe and take advantage to visit the surroundings.

  • Although a modern part has been added to the original Romanesque apse and bell tower, the mix is not too jarring. The interior - modern - is pleasant, with interesting stained glass.  more »

  • Nice Church .... closed after 10 pm .... in old town .... top of meritxell ....
  • Kind of ugly, really. It was a considerable disappointment and I wouldn't recommend spending time coming here.
  • Looks nice from outside with the mountains in the background, but not much to see inside. Relatively new building
  • 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.
