On 30th November 2000 the World Heritage Committee of UNESCO approved the registration of the “Catalan Romanesque Churches of the Vall de Boi” to the World Heritage List.
The Vall de Boí World Heritage Consortium is the entity in charge of the management of this property made up of the churches of Sant Climent de Taüll, Santa Maria de Taüll, Sant Joan de Boí, Santa Eulàlia d’Erill la Vall, Sant Feliu de Barruera, la Nativitat de Durro, Sant Quirc de Durro, Santa Maria de Cardet and l’Assumpció de Cóll.
The Consortium is made up of the Department of Culture of the Generalitat of Catalonia, the Deputation of Lleida, the Regional Council of Alta Ribagorça, the Vall de Boí Town Council, the Bishopric of Urgell and the Bishopric of Lleida.
The headquarters of the Consortium is the Vall de Boí Romanesque Centre, located in the village of Erill la Vall.
The mission of the Consortium is the conservation and diffusion of the outstanding universal values for which this property was inscribed on the World Heritage List.
With this objective in mind, the Consortium carries out various actions ranging from the restoration and ordinary maintenance of the churches to actions for the cultural and tourist dissemination of the complex.
In order to make the churches accessible to the public and present the heritage in such a way that the visitor can experience the significance of the complex, the Romanesque Centre offers three main services: the opening of the churches to the public, the guided tour service and the interpretation and visitor reception area.
