  • For lovers of the Gothic quarter, the Cathedral of Tortosa is a great experience! Clean, stripped, interesting. Now that there is a plan for the façade, it will be a complete tour!

  • Half build in order not to obstruct the path of the canons of the castle which protected the river. The chapel of the patron Virgin of the tape and the altarpiece of the high altar are precious. For a very reasonable entrance (4€) you can visit the Museum that keeps some gems in the form of chairs and wall hangings that it is worth to see.

  • Beautiful and imposing Gothic work. The bell towers are not finished. They should be much higher. There is a different style hoods, some with very beautiful paintings.

  • Ancient Baroque & Gothic cathedral in Tortosa.
  • Unique and impressive.
  • Santa María de Tortosa Cathedral sits in the space in which stood the Roman Forum, and later, already as a place of worship, the Visigoth Cathedral, and later the mosque. The disappeared Romanesque cathedral, which was located within the grounds of the current Temple was constructed between 1158 and 1178. The works of the Gothic Cathedral began in the year 1347.
