Beget - Sant Cristòfol Church - Majestat

Beget is a small town in the valley whose essence has practically remained unchanged. This place’s rural, Romanesque and majestic style makes it ideal for switching off and enjoying the nature of the mountain nearby while listening to the water from the rivers that flow through it.

With stone as its main feature, the town is characterised by its cobbled alleyways and two Medieval bridges.

It is important to note that it has been certified by the Catalan Tourism Agency as a Cultural Heritage Site under the category “Charming Towns” and in 2021 was included in the category “The Prettiest Towns in Spain”.

Its main characteristic building, the Church of San Cristóbal, is a 12th century Romanesque temple. It has a Latin cross layout, with a semi-circular apse at the top. The belfry is attached to the nave on the south side, almost touching the calvary and square in shape. La Majestad de Beget is found in its interior. Considered one of the key works of Catalan Romanesque sculpture, it is a 12th century Romanesque polychrome carving of Christ in Majesty measuring about two metres high.

Take a trip back in time and walk its cobbled alleyways.
