What will you discover in each church?

The Church of Sant Climent de Taüll is the iconic image of Romanesque architecture in the Vall de Boí. But do you know the meaning of its famous paintings of the Christ in Majesty? During the visit we’ll travel back to the 12th century to view its original location, thanks to the new video mapping technologies.

Did you know that the Parish Church of Santa Maria was consecrated one day after the Church of Sant Climent? We’ll explain this coincidence and view the reproductions of the Epiphany wall paintings inside.

The 10th and 11th December 1123 the churches of Sant Climent and Santa Maria in Taüll were consacrated.

900 years ago, the consecration of the two churches in Taüll, one day apart, shows us the importance of the place and demonstrates the power of the feudal lords and the Church. Discover it with us in a route from Sant Climent, in the lower town, up to the main square with the church of Santa Maria. We will see the importance of the exterior and interior space, the communication of the symbolic message and how the consecration ceremony took place

The visit will enable you to enjoy the experience of entering a Romanesque church painted with Saints and real and fantastic animals from the mediaeval bestiaries. Will you be able to identify them?

We’ll explain why the bell tower of Santa Eulàlia is one of the best in the valley and we’ll view the reproduction of the sculptural ensemble of the Descent from the Cross, the only one from the Erill Workshop preserved in its entirety.

Here we’ll see an excellent example of how churches are living things that have adapted from the 11th and 12th centuries to the present day. We’ll focus on its architectural evolution and strategic location.

We’ll learn more about the monumental nature of the church, its decorative wealth and where the resources to build it came from. Did you know that it has retained an original Romanesque carving inside?

Having stopped in time, its interior shows us what these churches looked like in the early 20th century. We’ll visit the only Romanesque crypt in the valley and explain its function.

The most interesting part that we’ll focus on is the sculpted entrance, regarded as the best in the valley, as well as the characteristic decorations in the Lombard Romanesque style.
