Here are the ten most essential parts of the Cathedral to get to know this two-thousand-year-old temple.


Cathedral façade

A magnificent Gothic portal crowned by an impressive rose window eleven metres in diameter.


Cathedral interior

An imposing interior that stands out for its great luminosity and the presence of a large number of chapels.


Main altarpiece

One of the finest examples of Catalan Gothic sculpture made of coloured and gilded alabaster.


Organ and choir stalls

This is an exceptional ensemble, as it is one of the few Renaissance organs that has preserved its sculptural structure and two hinged doors.


Bimillenary Archaeological Route

Discover the porticoed wall that surrounded the religious site at the time of the Roman Empire.


Cloister and Romanesque doorway

A place for reading, strolling and meditation, it's connected with the Cathedral through a magnificent Romanesque portal in white marble.


Cyma and the "Procession of the Rats"

A decorative feature in the cloister depicting the most famous scene from the so-called "legend of the procession of the rats".


Chapel of the Holy Sacrament

A beautiful example of the Renaissance style, notable for its dome, the open tambours on the vault and the altars built into the sides.


Outstanding chapels

The naves of the Cathedral and the cloister house a large number of chapels that show the architectural and stylistic evolution of the Cathedral complex.
