Sant Climent de Taüll - La Vall de Boí - Lleida - UNESCO world heritage site

The Churches of the Vall de Boí are a set of nine Early Romanesque churches located in the Catalan comarque of Alta Ribagorça (Province of Lleida). Collectively they are UNESCO world heritage sites.

Sant Climent de Taüll is a Romanesque style church greatly influenced by the Lombard style. The bell tower is an example of Byzantine influence because it stands out for its verticality. The church was intended as a place for Christian worship, unlike other churches of the time, which were intended as a pilgrimage. The artwork in Sant Climent de Taüll was important in bringing the art into the public atmosphere. Catalonia | Europe
