Basilicas of Santa Maria de Vilafranca del Penedès

The majestic outline of this basilica dominates the old town. Depicted by an elegantly proportioned single nave, it is one of the oldest examples of Gothic architecture in Catalonia (1285-1484). The very low 16C crypt is vaulted with diagonal ribs.
