Site DescriptionThe Cathedral of St. Mary of La Seu Vella (150 km from Barcelona)is considered a Romanesque work, although it has elements of Gothic architecture and some Renaissance additions. The site was previously occupied by a Palaeo-Christian and Visigothic cathedral, which later, after the Islamic conquest of Spain, was rebuilt in 832 to be used as a mosque. In 1149, after the city's conquest by the Christian Ramon Berenguer IV of Barcelona and Ermengol VI of Urgell (1149), the structure was reconsecrated as "Santa Maria Antiqua" The cloister has a slightly trapezoidal floor plan with four galleries forty-eight meters long by nine wide, notable for its exceptional dimensions, which make it one of the largest cloisters in Europe, covered with ridge vaults, its construction was begun at the end of the thirteenth century by the master builder Guillem d'Enill. On west side there is the Apostles’ Gate. The name of this portal is derived from the twelve highly fragmented images of the apostles that presided over the gate. A Virgin is located in the mullion of the gate and a group of prophets and angels located on small pedestals in the archivolts completed the sculptural decoration of this noble gate, also known as the Gate of Final Judgement, as this is the subject of representation chosen for its tympanum. It became the main entrance to the cathedral complex, as the Romanesque facade of the temple had been sacrificed to the construction of the cloister.
