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

 

The village of Erill la Vall, in the Catalan Pyrenees, seen from the top of the bell tower, an impressive romanesque structure.

 

Erill la Vall is a tiny village in the Catalan Pyrenees. It has an awesome romanesque church, specially important for it's bell tower and sculptoric group.

 

The Vall de Boí, in the Catalan Pyrenees, is home to one of the most unique romanesque churches in Europe. There are 9 churches part of the UNESCO World Heritage, all of them with most of the structure dating from the XI Century, and including precious frescoes, wooden sculpture and other religious elements, all in romanesque style. All this survived for a thousand years thanks to the extreme isolation of this Catalan valley, surrounded by 3000 m. hight mountains. Obviously, now modern roads make the comunications much easier. Also, the nature surrounds all the churches with beautiful peaks and forests.
