TECHNIQUE: Fresco mural painting on the wall
BUILDING: Hermitage of Santa Maria de la Bovera
TOWN/REGION: Guimerà (Catalonia)

It represents the landscape of the environment of this sanctuary and allows to shelter diverse contents: the sanctuaries and villages of the zone, the traditional procession from Guimerà and the legend of the finding of the Virgin under the trunk of an oak for a few oxen.
The paintings create a pictorial fund in the presbytery arranged by an architecture of pillars leaned under the cornice of the arches, and they reflect the concept of the hermitage as spiritual place with strong roots to the natural environment and the popular tradition.
