Consecrated on 10th December 1123 by Ramon Guillem, Bishop of Roda Barbastre, the Church of Sant Climent de Taüll was built on top of an 11th-century place of worship.
It’s the prototype of a basilica-style Romanesque church with its three naves separated by pillars, a gabled wooden roof, a chancel with three apses and a bell tower.
The image of Christ in Majesty in Taüll is one of the most iconic works used to depict Catalan Romanesque architecture. The original is preserved at the National Art Museum of Catalonia.
Important fragments of original Romanesque wall paintings preserved in situ have recently been recovered from the church and a museographic project including the projection of the paintings in the main apse with video mapping has been implemented.
This new medium capitalises on the technical potential of mapping to show us what the church would have looked like in the 12th century, displaying the paintings integrated into the architecture and combining them with the original painting scenes preserved in situ.
Three Romanesque carvings complement the collection of assets preserved at Sant Climent.
