Serving Catholics since 978

Built in 978, ransacked during the Spanish Civil War and finally restored in the twentieth century -- Església de Sant Jaume de Queralbs is one of the oldest surviving Romanesque churches in Spain. It is worth a visit in and of itself, to the beautiful village of Queralbs. Once the mayor, a man by the name of Jaume (si, just like the church) will welcome you in by challenging you to open the ancient door with a key twice the size of a human hand. Once inside, you will see faded frescoes above the altar and statues of Christ, Mary and varying saints -- including, appropriately for Catalunya, the patron Saint of Pork: St. Anthony. Jaume will also show you photographs of what the church looked like before it was ransacked during the Civil War...all, for only €1!
