A small church in a flat area at 1,504 m where there are spectacular views of Escaldes-Engordany and Andorra la Vella, the towns which dominate the Valira’s valley in the central part of the country.

The original paintings are in the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya – National Art Museum of Catalonia (MNAC) in Barcelona, ​​but you can find a reproduction in the church.
