Santa Eulàlia d’Erill-la-Vall means Santa Eulalia Erill-the-Valley in English.
The really small village Erill la Vall is a picturesque place filled with traditional houses, built in the local style of architecture, which uses materials such as wood, stone, and slate.
The most remarkable legacy in Catalonia, the church of Santa Eulàlia, in Erill la Vall, was built in the Lombard-Romanesque style, dates from the 12th century.
I went into the museum “CRVB” Centre del Romànic de la Vall de Boi which is adjacent to the church first.
You can watch a short movie about the local history and culture of this area.
Discover the Romanesque Churches of Vall de Boí! In this Pyrenean valley you’ll find a wealth of cultural heritage: eight churches and one chapel.
I entered The Church of Santa Eulalia after looking around the museum.
It’s better to read this booklet than my explanation.
I went up the bell tower of the Church of Santa Eulalia afterwards.
Saint Eulalia (c. 290–12 February 303) was a 13-year-old Roman Christian virgin who suffered martyrdom in Barcelona during the persecution of Christians in the reign of emperor Diocletian.
For refusing to recant her Christianity, the Romans subjected her to thirteen tortures and finally decapitation.
There is the coffin of Saint Eulalia in the big church of Barcelona. Would she expect such a luxurious coffin?
I left for the Church of Sant Joan de Boi.
