Cathedral

Interesting
Since the 6C, the original basilica has been altered time and again, resulting in this composite-style but rather majestic building. The south portico, from the 15C, is in the Catalan Gothic style, whereas the chevets have retained their original Arab-Norman style (12C), with their geometrical patterns with incrustations of lava. The neo-Classical cupola was added in the 18C, at the time the interior underwent a complete overhaul.
