In the upper part of the town

Lovers of Romanesque art have a special reason to visit Arties, the lovely village of the Valley of Arán where the Church of Santa María is located.

The temple is located at the highest point of the village and faces the Garona river. It dates back to the Twelfth century and has a floor plan with three naves, facing the three apses that are semi-circular and today there is only one left.

The belfry of the church, which has five levels, is a blend between Romanesque and Gothic, which leads one to think it was added between the Thirteenth and Fourteenth centuries. A special mention is the remarkable frescoes inside the church which have been restored recently. The altarpiece, which displays biblical scenes of the Virgin Mary, is considered a masterpiece in Gothic painting.
