  • Right in the village center, next to restaurants and cafes, a picturesque architecture. Past Andorra worth visit.

  • 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.

  • 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
  • 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.
  • Old photo from 1993.
