The stylish Taull is at 900 miles above sea level. There are two parts to the village, located around the churches of Santa María and Sant Climent, whose mural paintings are some of the most important exponents of Catalonian Romanesque art. Especially outstanding is the Pantocrator, or Majestic Christ. As a matter of fact, the villages' churches are first mentioned in the 12th century. Originally the idea was to establish a monastic centre here. Both these Romanesque churches, with their spectacular stone and slate bell towers, received the UNESCO World Heritage designation in 2000. It is also set in ideal surroundings for adventure sports such as: paragliding and canyoning; walks in the valleys; climbs to nearby peaks; horse riding; mountain biking.
