Built in the XIIth c., this church is of romanesque style. I personally appreciated its simplicity and the fact that the paintings next to the altar and the Virgin Mary statue at the entrance are distinct from what you'd see in the churches of neighbouring countries. When we visited (early Jan.), there was a lovely exhibition of "Nativity scenes" (Bélen)... More

Not in the major leagues when it comes to old churches, but very nice. Lovely stained glass windows, quiet and serene environment. Clean and well kept. If you're in town, worth walking to and spending a few minutes. Especially considering there is little to do in this city other than shopping.

When we visited we were the only ones in the church, an unusual experience. The paintings on the ceiling above the altar reminded us of artwork from the American Southwest. Nice place to go to clear your mind and say a few words.

This Andorran Romanesque church is not impressive at all. Neither its interior nor its exterior. I did not find it deserving going the extra mile to it. However, it is fine to be visited if one is in the neighbourhood.

It's good to pop up, to see the church, which is located right in the center of the old town of Andorra la Vella. Nothing extraordinary, but during the hot summer day it could be good to cool down.

Andorra is not known for its big churches - and this isn't one. There is a romanesque part, with a small tower, and built onto it a tasteful (but not huge) modern piece. We really enjoyed the modern stained glass with vivid colours. Drop in for 5 minutes if you are in the old town - this is not worth... More

Arguably, the exterior view of the stone built church tower is the most attractive feature of this church. Having said that, the unexpectedly modern style of the interior is actually very attractive and contrasts perfectly with the stone structure at the front of the church

Pretty average church. Easy to find on the main road into the old town. No information in English which was a shame. Not even open to go inside.

Sweet little church that you can go in and look around. Only small, pretty much there for 10 minutes. It's surrounded by nice cafes and is a nice area around the church.
