The chapel of Sant Romà d’Auvinyà is a pre-Romanesque, highly irregular construction in which mud was used to bind the stones.

In the usual style of these kinds of small constructions, it is a rectangular building. Its apse, which is narrower than the nave, is trapezoidal in shape and the same height. The door and the window are worn on the inside. The south wall is built more carefully than the others. At the back of the apse, we find a cement rectangular altar. In the south wall there is a niche. Twobuttresses were installed at the end of the nave and beginning of the apse to support the vault. There is now a window in the west wall.

This is a typical 10th century construction in Andorra. It was restored in 1963.
