Romanesque in Andorra
In Andorra, the Romanesque is the main architectural style. There are historical references about it from the 8th century to the 13th century, even when in other places in Europe the Gothic was already developing, in Andorra the Romanesque was still prevailing. The Andorran Romanesque is defined by small stone and slate churches, some of them having altar pieces, original mural paintingsand polychrome painted wooden figures. Some examples of these churches are Sant Climent de Pal (in La Massana), Sant Martí de la Cortinada (in Ordino), Santa Coloma (in Andorra la Vella), or Sant Joan de Caselles (in Canillo). Moreover, there are some houses and bridges built during the Romanesque period.
