Church of L'Assumpció de Maria del Pont de Suert

Church
A modern church in the shape of a ship and with an original chapel in the form of an egg, designed in the middle of the 20th century by architect Eduardo Torroja Miret. It has a separate belfry that seems to represent the lighthouse that guides the ship.

A church built in the middle of the 20th century by the architect Eduardo Torroja Miret, one of the main specialists in building with concrete at the time. It is the newest church in El Pont de Suert and was built to make room for parishioners when, due to the opening of the hydroelectric company Enher, the town increased in size considerably.

It is built in a modern style and has a single nave ending in an apse. Moreover, it has a separate belfry, a baptistry and a chapel. The main body of the church is in the shape of an upside-down boat, the chapel is egg-shaped and the belfry looks like a lighthouse. Inside we can see paintings by Maria Röesset and sculptures by Jacinto Higueras Cátedra.
