One of the main characteristics of the historical and architectural ensemble in Alt Urgell is the Romanesque, and in our valleys we find a very important number of churches of this style, and altarpieces from the Gothic period, forming a unique altarpiece set which is still spoken in its original place after the Civil War. We propose a Romanesque route through our valleys.
Romanesque is characterized by churches of low height, narrow windows, rounded apses at the back, wide walls and semicircular arches. But what better way to distinguish them than to meet them in person? We make a collection of the different Romanesque churches and hermitages in the Vall de la Vansa and Tuixent, with their characteristics and Gothic altarpieces that you will find. The list is in order to be able to create your Romanesque route.
There’s a lot to visit, isn’t there? So we recommend booking a room in Cal Gabriel and Cal Farragetes to enjoy all our architectural heritage with the peace of mind you deserve.
