TAÜLL

The Romanesque complex of the Vall de Boí is made up of the churches of Sant Climent and Santa Maria de Taüll, Sant Joan de Boí, Santa Eulàlia d’Erill la Vall, Sant Feliu de Barruera, the Nativitat de Durro, Santa Maria de Cardet, the Assumpció de Cóll and the hermitage of Sant Quirc de Durro.

One of its main characteristics is the unity of architectural style. They are constructions made during the 11th and 12th centuries following the models from northern Italy, the Lombard Romanesque, which is characterized by the functionality of its constructions, the careful work of the stone, the slender tower bell towers, and the exterior decoration of blind arches and Lombard bands.

It is worth highlighting the sets of mural paintings that housed the churches of Sant Climent and Santa Maria de Taüll and Sant Joan de Boí, currently preserved in the National Museum of Art of Catalonia (MNAC), as well as all the carvings produced by the Erill Workshop, to highlight the Descent of Santa Eulàlia d’Erill la Vall.

BOÍ VALLEY

The Romanesque of the Boí Valley is exceptional due to the concentration in a reduced space of such a large number of churches of the same architectural style, preserved over time with few modifications that have significantly altered its initial conception.

In the Vall de Boi you can also enjoy countless outdoor activities such as hiking between the towns and within the National Park, bicycle routes, rafting, canyoning, panoramic points, walks through the Salencar, thermal routes in the Caldas de Boi Spa, Ski-in Boi Taull, in summer enjoy the sun and nature in any of the two pools (Boi and Barruera), and an endless number of other activities that this fantastic Valley offers.
