Santuario de Meritxell Reviews
Es original con los arcos en pié, es parte de su encanto. Por lo que vimos allí hay visitas guiadas cada 30 minutos. more »It is original with the arches standing, it is part of its charm. From what we saw there there are guided tours every 30 minutes.
En el santuario podemos observar puertas y paredes de cristal, tambien podemos apreciar el antiguo santuario, el actual creo que es obra del arquitecto Bofill, yo lo he encontrado muy original more »In the sanctuary we can see doors and walls of glass, we can also appreciate the old sanctuary, the current one I think is the work of the architect Bofill, I have found it very original
Such a nice setting. A real sense of tranquility, beautiful views and great architecture. A must visit village only minutes of the main road.
Breathtaking location where old ( really really really old) meets new .. the architectural concept is great and the athmosphere is relaxing and peaceful... one star missing as there is no chance for English/ German speaking people to follow - there are quite some explaining posters/text but all in a language I don’t understand at all ( some copied papers would do great .. and it would be a Full Five Star)
