The Catedral of Saint Mary of Tortosa is a cathedral located in Tortosa, Catalonia, Spain and seat of the Diocese of Tortosa. The present structure is located in the center of the city's old town.DesignIts construction began in 1347 on the remains of a previous Romanesque cathedral. The cathedral was completed two centuries later. It was designed by Benito Dalguayre and has three naves with chapels between the buttresses and an ambulatory with radial chapels. The church is constructed in the Catalan Gothic style, though the façade, from the 18th century, is Baroque.Archeological excavations on the site revealed that the cathedral was constructed on the site of an older Romanesque church, which was itself built on the site of the old Roman forum of Tortosa.Images

  • I understand that you have to keep the Cathedral, but the Church already revenue (and pays no taxes) of the State. Here, an exhibition, are invented to justify an entry €4 for the visit. I thought that the churches were open to any believer. The exhibition should not be compulsory.

  • It is a must stop if you come to Tortosa, and not only by the Cathedral, if not by the interior exhibition, to walk through the catacombs... It is worth paying the entrance, there is a lot to see and learn

  • Ancient Baroque & Gothic cathedral in Tortosa.
  • Unique and impressive.
  • Tortosa Cathedral, beautiful Cathedral of medieval, on remains of Roman and Muslim origin. The altar of the Virgen de la Cinta, patroness of the city, is a worth seeing wonder.
