Sant Andreu de Lliurona (or Llorona) has a 12th-century nave although the apse was not preserved. It is built out of large well-carved ashlars and houses a barrel vault. There is a descending arch entrance to the western façade with sculpted motifs on the tympanum and imposts. The door panels still house a series of Romanesque iron fittings (bolt, door knocker, volute or spiral ribbons) similar to other churches in the Pyrenean counties. The belfry and vestry are later additions.
