  • The Church is most famous for the stalls and organ wooden Renaissance (very particular organ for its angular form). To admire the stalls and the cloister you have to pay a ticket that includes the audioguide, for free you can admire the organ and the choir screen. Very nice village of St. Bertrand, near don't forget another gem St Just de Valcabriere.
