I headed to the chapel of Sant Quirc on a hill from the center of Durro Village on foot. It took about 30 minutes.
The hermitage of Sant Quirc Durro is a chapel isolated on the territory of the village of Durro, municipality of La Vall de Boi.
Sant Quirc Durro is in a Mecca of Romanesque art in the valley with remarkable buildings: it is one of nine Romanesque churches of the Vall de Boi registered in November 2000 on the World Heritage List of UNESCO.
The chapel has a plan of an unique nave, barrel-vaulted, ended with a apse semicircular arched in bottom of furnace.
The building has three openings: a narrow window arrow-slit in the center of the apse, an oculus (scircular opening in the centre of a dome) above the apse, illuminating the nave, and another arrow-slit on the west façade. The entrance gate on the south façade has a semicircular arch.
Inside St. Quirc Durro had an element of the first order: the altar before, representing the martyrdom of St. Quirc and St. Julitte, a major work of Catalan Romanesque painting acquired in 1923 and now exposed to National Museum Art de Catalunya (MNAC).
The chapel is located 1498 m above sea level, overlooking a vast panorama of the massive closed by Comaloforno and Besiberri.
I found a fountain in the vicinity of the chapel. The water was crystal clear, it would be ideal for water and whiskey.
