  • At the confluence of the Segre and Valira rivers and dominated by the sierra del Cadi are the capital of the region of the Alto Urgell: SEO of URGEL (La Seu d'Urgell in catalan), ancient crossroads and natural gate of entrance to the Principality of Andorra. Its strategic position and the political power of the bishopric strengthened the Seu d´Urgell as one of the most important cities of medieval Catalonia. With the consecration of the first cathedral, from the 5th century, the importance of the city began to grow exponentially and that is how the city bears the name of its main monument, the Cathedral of Santa Maria (the monumental Cathedral), built in the 12th century and the only Romanesque cathedral preserved in Catalonia. Emphasizes the cloister and its various capitals with a variety of reasons, from vegetable to animal and human figures. It is the only entirely Romanesque cathedral in Catalonia, considered a unique specimen within the Romanesque art in Catalonia for its Italianate, highly visible characteristics in the ornamentation of the facade and the open gallery of the head of the temple. It is chaired by Virgin of Urgell (Magna Parens or Magna dominates Urgellitana), patron saint of the city. But La Seu d´Urgell is more than your Seu, because it is worth walking its porticoed streets (mainly the Carrer Major and Carrer dels Canonges) or visiting, among others, the Church of Sant Miquel (11th century and attached to the Cathedral), the Diocesan Museum or the library of Sant Agustí. And as travellers, rest in its Parador Nacional.
