Sant Joan de Caselles - Andorra

Last september Joana "joaninha" went to Barcelona to participate in the Eurobilltracker meeting. Once there she and a few other friends went to Andorra. She didn't have time to send a card from there but she sent me this one when she got home. It was one of my favorites.

Sant Joan de Caselles, also known as the Church of Sant Joan de Caselles, is a fine example of Andorran Romanesque architecture. The church was built between the 11th and 14th centuries, and its three-story bell tower is the tallest church tower in Andorra. magnificent three-storied bell-tower. It has Lombard windows on three sides on the upper two levels.
The tower was built separately from the rest of the church and was later joined to the church by a body of stone. - in:
