  • An architecture that mind-blowing with a certain respect for the materials of the country at the service of one major prayer venue in Andorra. See with respect and attention

  • Modern, modern eastilo sanctuary, next to the you can see the remains of the ancient Romanesque sanctuary. In winter with all snow is somewhere magical. Place of devotion and meditation. Open until 19:00 in winter. Take coins to light a candle, and make an offering!

  • The sanctuary suffered a fire and had to reform it, they got it and it is super nice. The light that makes it unique. We were pleasantly surprised at the visit.

  • Although it is very close to the main road, it was all a dare visit this shrine the afternoon we did, in which was falling a tremendous snowfall, as you can see in the photo. The views from the sanctuary must be very beautiful, although we could not appreciate them. The environment is full of peace and quiet. It is a sanctuary designed in 1976 by the Spanish Ricardo Bofill, about the ancient Romanesque Sanctuary which burned nearly almost entirely in 1972, including the Romanesque sculpture of the Virgin - that there is a copy -
