Route of the hermitages in Solsonès

Route of the hermitages in Solsonès

We propose a circular route in the Solsonès region through which you will discover an extensive cultural heritage of interesting Romanesque hermitages.

La Vall de Lord is an area rich in cultural heritage, where its hermitages stand out, which are isolated in the middle of the forests of the municipality of La Coma and La Pedra. A good example are the parish church of La Coma, Sant Sadurní de la Pedra and Santa Creu del Roser.

The forests of diverse vegetation through which the route travels fill with different shades of green in spring and with red, orange and yellow tones during autumn.

We propose a circular route to discover these Romanesque hermitages.

Places of interest

Sant Quirze and Santa Julita

Parish Church of La Coma located in the Plaza Mayor. Sant Quirze y Santa Julita is the parish church of La Coma and is located in the same main square of the town. The first document that makes reference is the act of consecration of the church of San Saturnino de Tavèrnoles, of 1040, year in which the bishop of Urgell confirmed all the possessions that the monastery had.
Witnesses of the old church are the forged iron of the door, which is currently observed at the entrance of the monument. The whole is conserved very entire, which leads to think that it was replaced in later times. Probably its author was a humble craftsman who made an element that reinforced the wooden structure while giving the door an ornamental motif that made it more attractive.

Sant Sadurní de la Pedra

This church is known, when Count Wifredo el Velloso and Bishop Galderic repopulated the Valley between the years 872 and 878. It is a Romanesque church from the 9th century with three square apses with a barrel vault, hidden between the later incorporations 18th century. The door has large voussoirs that form a middle arch and followed by a bevelled flange on the front. It has an airy bell tower and preserves a Baroque altar.

Santa Creu del Roser

It is named after a church that was previously dedicated to the Holy Cross, a very popular devotion between the 11th and 12th centuries. Later, in the 18th century, it took the name of the Roser. Its structure, small in size, has a square plan and has been recently renovated.
