Its construction began in 1184, over the remains of an old Christian basilica that had also been erected on top of a 10th-century Arab mosque. It was built in the Romanesque style, in its transition to the Gothic. The church has a Latin-cross plan, with three naves and a pronounced transept, crowned with an impressive octagonal dome. The naves end in three circular apses. On the main façade there are two outstanding 12th-century Romanesque portals, and a lovely rose window with openwork tracery. In the mullion of the portal there is an image of the Virgin and Child. Highlights on the interior include the remarkable 15th-century high altarpiece by Pere Johan. Made with polychromatic alabaster, its most striking feature is the trilogy of sculptures representing the Virgin, Saint Tecla and Saint Paul. The archbishop's tomb, placed over the high altar, is one of the cathedral's Gothic treasures, as is the chapel of Santa María dating from the 14th century. The Diocesan Museum contains particularly an excellent collection of tapestries from the workshops of Brussels, along with a altarpiece made by Jaime Huguet.
