Romanesque churches of Vall de Boí
The resort is surrounded by the essence of Romanesque art with churches and towns which comprise the Romanesque Churches of Vall de Boí, official UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
The Romanesque Churches of Vall de Boí include Sant Climent and Santa Maria in Taüll, Sant Joan in Boí, Santa Eulàlia in Erill la Vall, Sant Feliu in Barruera, La Nativitat in Durro, Santa Maria in Cardet, L’Assumpció in Cóll and the hermitage of Sant Quirc in Durro.
