Regarding

Saint Pierre Church is 17th century and has rich baroque features and a huge wooden high altar with altarpiece designed by Joseph Sunyer. This altarpiece has three dramatic bays in three different forms with statues and angels including Saint Peter’s majestic figure in the Centre. The church’s southern wall displays Saint Pierre de Prades' and Saint Michel de Cuixa's goldsmithery and reliquaries that were collected in Prades during the French Revolution. There are further relics and a saints’ body which enhanced the abbey's prestige throughout the Middle Ages.
