  • In the course of my Andorra holiday I made here support. This church is situated in the old town close to the Casa de la Vall. From the outside a little gem and quite simple but nevertheless impressive from the inside. Who visited Andorra La Vella should make a trip here. It's worth.

  • Simple church at the historical area. Good to go for a prayer. Walk upwards to the parliament house.  more »
  • This small Romanesque church is located in the historic center of the city of Andorra. It is located in a pleasant environment, but does not have a lot of appeal except its bell tower made of stone. The inside is very clean but its stained glass windows are well colored and the altar is all in gilding.

  • Compared to other ancient churches, this one is just okay. In my opinion it's prettier from the outside than the inside.
  • Little boy asked me for a sexual favour. You know what I say? No way!
  • 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.
  • Great place to visit! But it's really cold in winter!
