The Romanesque is the most widespread architectural and pictorial movement in Catalonia and in Berguedà, a fairly homogeneous current that developed in present-day western Europe from the 11th century until the late 13th.
Small churches built by our craft ancestors in the most inhospitable places; churches that laid the foundations for today's churches; an interesting monastery and churches perfectly restored and equipped to visit. You will surely find in each of your walks some memories of this splendid time when faith made the most unimaginable. A legacy that the Berguedà has managed to preserve.
There are currently eleven of the Pre-Romanesque and Romanesque churches in Berguedà, of which five (Sant Vicenç de Obiols, Sant Sadurní de Rotgers, Sant Vicenç de Rus, Sant Quirze de Pedret and the Monastery of Sant Llorenç) are open to the public. Curtently, Due to the COVID-19 situation, they will only offer guided tours by appointment, so you can enjoy and discover some of the most important works of this current in Catalonia. Santa Maria d'Avià, Santa Maria de Lillet, Sant Martí de Puig-Reig, Sant Andreu de Sagàs and the church of Sant Jaume de Frontanyà can be visited by asking for the key in each of the places indicated by each church.
In addition, Civitas Cultura organizes cultural activities in the Monastery of Sant Llorenç every weekend from spring to autumn and sporadic activities in the other four spaces that can be visited.
