ROMANESQUE CHURCHES

Following the Arab invasion, construction began on the Marca Hispanica, which was settled by force in this area as the battle front between the Christians and the Muslims was in Pallars. From those times we can still see the border castles built around 1,000 years ago, such as the fortresses at Mur and Llordà, as well as the churches that were erected wherever there was an outcrop of resistance, such as Verge de la Cinta church in Llimiana and Santa Maria in Covet, with its impressive sculpted gate. Pallars is truly Roman territory: l’Església de la Verge de la Cinta a Llimiana, Sant Esteve d’Abella, Sant Vicenç de Capdella, Sant Martí de la Torre de Capdella, Sant Julià d’Espui, la Mare de Déu de la Plana de Pessonada, Sant Joan Baptista de Cellers, l’Ermita de la Mare de Déu de Fabregada, Santa Creu de l’Alzina and Mare de Déu d’Arbul. 

SANTA MARIA DE MUR

The paintings from the central apse are nowadays at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston (USA), and are considered as one of the best examples of Romanesque paintings abroad.

SANTA MARIA DE COVET

The main façade, facing east, has a sculptured portal that is regarded as one of the most outstanding examples of Romanesque sculpture in Catalonia.
