Al estil italià / Like in Italy

L'església de Era Mare de Diu de Cap d'Aran, a la vila de Tredós (Aran), és força singular. El seu campanar està separat de l'esglèsia, cosa gens usual a Catalunya, però força comú a Italia. Les pintures romàniques del abside es troben al museu The Cloisters de Nova York!

==================

 

This church, called Era Mare de Diu de Cap d'Aran, is located in the mountain village of Tredòs, in the Vall d'Aran (Catalonia). It's one of the most important churches in that valley, but also is interesting for the location of the bell tower. It's separated from the church, which is quite unusual in Catalonia, but normal in other places, specially in Italy.

 

It's romanesque frescoes are preserved a bit further away... across the Atlantic. They are in The Cloisers museum, New York!
