Church of San Llorenç

The Church of San Lorenzo de Huesca is a building of Romanesque origin from the 12th century, with important Gothic additions. It has three naves of equal height, being the main one of Romanesque style and the other two of Gothic style, each one topped by an apse. Its octagonal bell tower, also Gothic, was built in the 15th century and restored in 2002. Inside it houses four outstanding Gothic altarpieces, among them the one of San Lorenzo, the largest, as well as various works of art from the Diocesan Museum of Lleida. The church is known for being one of the main architectural jewels of the city and for preserving one of the best collections of polychrome stone altarpieces.

Over the centuries, the Church of San Lorenzo has suffered various vicissitudes, from being used as a cathedral on two occasions to suffering the ravages of the Spanish Civil War in 1936, when much of its artistic treasure was destroyed by fire. However, after restorations and reconstructions, the church has recovered part of its original splendor. The popular devotion to the image of the “Sant Crist Trobat” and the presence of the Pious Union of the “Portants de Sant Llorenç”, who venerate and procession an impressive figure of Christ Crucified, stand out. The church also has a magnificent organ that complements the beauty of its surroundings with sacred and concert music.
