Hopital de Saint Blaise

UNESCO Heritage List

Visitor's Rating: (0 out of 4/Number of Votes:0)

Hopital de Saint Blaise is a tiny village - population 80!- situated in the middle of a wooded area, some 5 km (3 miles) from the national road that links Oloron to Navarrenx .
The Hopital de Saint Blaise 12th century church is listed in the UNESCO's World Heritage along with the other monuments on the route to Santiago de Compostela.
The church's unique architectural style mixes Romanesque and Moorish traits.
The two most outstanding features are the cupola with its 8-pointed star - a Hispano-Moorish characteristic - and the simple but beautiful entrance door tympanum presenting Jesus Christ surrounded by the representations of the 4 evangelists.
