The altarpiece of St. Michael of Prats

The altarpiece of St. Michael of Prats

Credit Andorra has made possible the return of the Gothic predella of the altarpiece of St. Michael of Prats – back to Andorran land and hands. A few years ago, the Government of Andorra acquired another part of the same altarpiece, The fall of rebel angels, after a journey originated in a social, cultural, and even ecclesiastical context that is so different from the present that it is not possible to make an equitable and global judgment without taking it into account, following the wisdom of the classical aphorism - distingue tempora et concordabis iura - Distinguish between the times, and you will reconcile the claims

The success of the action taken by the Government of Andorra and Credit Andorra to promote the preservation and promotion of cultural heritage of our country and the fact that both copies can be exhibited at the Church of St. Michael of Prats, deserves recognition and should be cause of satisfaction of all citizens of the Principality.
