Sant Pere del Burgal is a Romanesque Benedictine monastery in Escaló, in the municipality of La Guingueta d'Àneu, Pallars Sobirà, Catalonia, Spain. The monastery was first mentioned in a precept of Count Raymond of Toulouse in 859. It later became a priory of the abbey of Roussillon. It fell into decline and was secularized in 1570 and confiscated in 1835.[1] It contains frescoes dated to the 11th century.
