Sant Climent de Taüll (Catalan pronunciation: [ˈsaŋ kɫiˈmɛn də təˈuʎ], locally: [ˈsaŋ kliˈmɛn de taˈuʎ]), also known as the Church of St. Clement of Tahull is a Roman Catholic church. It is a form of Romanesque architecture that contains magnificent Romanesque art. Other influences include the Lombard and Byzantine styles, which can be seen throughout the exterior and interior of the building. The church is a basilica plan structure with three naves, (each of them with a terminal apse) and large columns separating the side naves. Connecting to the church is a slim bell tower that has six floors plus a base. The artwork inside the church include the famous mural paintings by the Master of Taüll (contained in the different apses and the keys of the arches), as well as the wooden altar frontal. These works of art represent different aspects of Christianity that can also be found in many other works of art. The most famous fresco, of Christ in Majesty in the Apse of Sant Climent de Taüll main apse of the church, has been moved to the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya in Barcelona.
