The Romanesque church of Sant Esteve de Juberri is the southernmost of all the churches in the principality. 

Located on one side, it has a beautiful panoramic view of the valley of Sant Julià de Lòria. The Church of Sant Esteve de Juberri follows the simple layout of most of the churches in the principality: rectangular in shape, semi-circular apse, gabled bell tower and slate roof. 

The half-buried apse due to the layout of the land is turned perfectly to the east and, as in many other constructions in Andorra, there is no opening in the northern wall. Visitors can see that the whole building is a mixture of stones of all sizes, which emphasises the rustic sensation given by the whole complex. The relief, which as we have already said marks the construction, as it is half underground, accentuates the sensation of height inside the chapel. All of these characteristics situate the construction in the late 11th or early 12th century.
