Its construction began in 1184, over the remains of an old Christian basilica that, in turn, was erected on top of a 10th-century Arab mosque. It was made in Romanesque style, in transition to Gothic. The church has a Latin-cross plan, with three naves and an accentuated transept, over which stands an impressive octagonal dome. The naves end in three circular apses. On the main façade we see two remarkable 12th-century Romanesque portals, and a gorgeous rose window with openwork tracery. In the mullion of the portal there is an image of the Virgin with the Child. In the interior we can see the remarkable 15th-century high reredos, the work of Pere Johan. Made with polychromatic alabaster, its most striking feature is the trilogy of sculptures that represent the Virgin, St. Tecla and St. Paul. The Archbishop's Sepulchre, placed over the high altar, is one of the Gothic gems of this temple, as is the chapel of Santa María, which dates from the 14th century. At the Diocesan Museum, a wonderful collection of tapestries from the workshops of Brussels stands out, along with a reredos made by Jaime Huguet.
