About Cathedral De Tarragona

Views: 326. Updated: Oct 10, 2021 by: Barcelona Travel Hacks

Building work began on the cathedral in 1171, when Hug de Cervello, archbishop of Tarragona, bequeathed a sum of money in his will for its construction.

It was built on the site of the barracks and part of the sacred area of worship from the time of the Roman Empire during the first century A.D. Thought by some archaeologists to feature a large square and a temple to the Emperor Augustus. From the year 475, this was the probable site of the original Visigoth cathedral, of which nothing now remains as it was demolished during the Muslim invasions of 711.

The cathedral was consecrated in 1331, when the Infante John of Aragon was Archbishop of Tarragona and Patriarch of Alexandria. Its grandiosity and solidity have earned it the reputation of the finest cathedral in Catalonia.
