La Vall de Boí is a municipality formed by eight small population centers of between 9 and 200 inhabitants. Its high mountain landscapes and extreme climate contributed to the isolation of the valley for many centuries. This fact, along with the character of its people, customs and traditions, and its economic activity, based for centuries on subsistence livestock, have managed to preserve almost intact the territory and its natural and cultural riches.

The main attractions of the valley are the National Park of Aigüestortes and Estany de Sant Maurici, the Caldes de Boí spa, the ski slopes of Boí Taüll Resort, and the set of Romanesque churches declared World Heritage by UNESCO.

Visit us and relive old legends, ancestral traditions and ways of life of our ancestors surrounded by a valuable natural and cultural heritage.

Romanesque art has always been well known in Catalonia and it is in the Boí Valley that we find the most relevant exhibitions, being one of the most important collections of Romanesque art in Europe. In the year 2000, Unesco declared the group of nine Romanesque churches in the Valley as Heritage of Humanity: the Asunción del Coll, Sant Joan de Boí, Sant Climent de Taüll, Santa Maria de Taüll, Sant Feliu de Barruera, the Church of the Nativity of Durro, San Quirico de Durro, Santa Eulalia of Erill la Vall and Santa Maria de Cardet. Many of the altarpieces and other objects of art of these churches can be found in the National Museum of Art of Catalonia (MNAC).

Barruera

It is the central town of the Valley, with little more than 200 inhabitants, and which gave its name to the town until 1996, when it was called the Vall de Boí. It is in this town where the town hall of Vall de Boí is located. We also find the church of Sant Feliu, Romanesque style and the hermitage of San Salvador, also in Romanesque style.

Coll

Located on the right side of the river Noguera de Tor, we find the village of Coll, with about fifty inhabitants. We can visit the church of the Assumption, Romanesque style.

Saraís

Saraís is formed by a set of private houses. We find the church dedicated to Sant Llorenç, Romanesque and in a very poor state of preservation. It can only be accessed on foot.

Cardet

The small nucleus of Cardet is located on the right side of the Noguera de Tor, hanging on rocks at 1193 meters, from where fantastic panoramic views of the entire Vall de Boí are contemplated. We found the church of Santa María, Romanesque (11th and 12th centuries).

Durro

The town of Durro retains its medieval style with stone houses and narrow alleys. At the entrance of the village we can see the Nativity of the Virgin, Romanesque style with a solid bell tower with a square floor and a porch with large arches. Near Durró we also find the chapel of Sant Quirc, from where you can contemplate the town and the Valley.

Erill la Vall

Located under the peak of Erill (2,627m) include the church of Santa Eulàlia, with a Romanesque bell tower, consists of a single nave with a circular apse.

Boí

Traditionally it has been the most important town in the Boí Valley, and we can visit the bridge over the iris and the Romanesque church of Sant Joan, the oldest in the Valley (11th and 12th centuries) and containing the reproduction of old murals Romanesque of great interest.

Taüll

Taüll is the highest in the Valley of Boí, and you can see the church of Santa Maria and the church of Sant Climent, you can find a projection in videomapping.
