Overview
More
The building dates from the 11th-12th century and follows the architectural style of other Andorran Romanesque churches: it has a rectangular single nave with wooden ceiling, a semi-circular apse andLombard-style belfry. It conserves two archways probably built in the16th and 17th centuries.The interior has remains of a 12th century Romanesque stucco crucifix surrounded by a mural showing the crucifixion with Longinus andStephanon accompanied by the Sun and Moon. Behind the altar grillis a highly artistic 16th century altarpiece showing Italian and German Renaissance influence with scenes from the life and martyrdomof Saint John, author of the book of Revelations and patron saint ofthe church.

This is a beautiful church on the outskirts of Canillo. It is build of Andorran stone and is very picturesque. Unfortunately it was closed when we visited but it was still worth visiting.

It's a must-see place. We entered and had a guide explanation for free, which took us to middle age.

An easy church to find on the main road out from Andorra la Vella on the road to France. There is plenty of parking so why not get out wander around and marvel at the beautiful church in a wonderful landscape

Free parking. It's on the main road as you come in to town on the left. It's Amazing how something so beautiful had lasted all this time. Clearly this is still a place of religious significance to the locals. Treat with respect.

It is certainly worth to spend some time and visit this beauty. It's quite unique and old. Wiki says it is dated by XII century.
