Sant Serni de Nagol Church (San Julia de LoriaAndorra). Local citizens say about that: “Art inside, the spirit of freedom around”. The church was built at the crossroads of the valleys, where the sun shines all over the mountain hills. And this is the place where you will find the smallest church of Romanesque period, lost I the Pyrenees. This is a wonderful place, that has been known since 1055, will stay in your memory with its quietness and beauty.

This church was declared a monument by Act 9/2003 on the cultural Heritage of Andorra. The church was built in the classical Romanesque style: this is confirmed by a rectangular nave and semicircular apses. The bell tower has got two entrances, next to it there are the stairs that were added on later. The interior of the church is a simple but eloquent story about religion. The iconography symbolizes the eternal fight of the good and the evil.

One of the central plots is the Holy Lamb, surrounded by Angels. The altar piece is decorated by the elements of the XV century, dedicated to the life of the first bishop of Tolosa (Spain) and the priest of the church, it also contains the anagrams of Jesus Christ and Our Lady. The church is located in the place with a unique view to the mountain and valleys of the Principality.
