The cathedral of discord

Gerona Cathedral has the widest Gothic nave in the world. It was designed with three naves, but the decision to build a single nave caused the work to be suspended and sparked an argument that lasted 50 years.

The main entrance is reached up a large staircase dating from the late 17th century. The main façade is Baroque, while the cloister is 12th-century, the bell tower is 11th-century and the rest of the building dates from the 14th century. The cloister is large with a trapezoidal plan that is dictated by the wall to which it is adjoined. The interior contains works of great beauty and value. The high altarpiece, made of silver, enamel and precious stones, is one of the jewels of Spanish precious metalwork. The capitals of the cloister have scenes from the Old and New Testaments. The tapestry of the Creation is an important piece of Romanesque tapestry making. There is also a Liébana Beatus.
