About Vic Roman Cathedral

Vic cathedral, full name - Cathedral of St. Peter the Apostle, was founded in the 11th century in the lower part of the historical centre, close to the river and is a mix of Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque and Neoclassic building stles.

Religious buildings have existed on this site since 516AD in the Roman town. The first stone of the current church was laid on September 24, 1781 and was consecrated on September 15, 1803. The project is the work of the vigata Josep Moreta i Codina, in neoclassical style.

The crypt and the Romanesque bell tower survive from that period. Noteworthy features in the present-day neoclassical cathedral include the 14th century Gothic cloister and the alabaster altarpiece by Pere Oller, in the same style. From the baroque period, the chapel dedicated to Sant Bernat Calbe is a particular highlight.

Josep Maria Sert was commissioned to decorate the walls and ceilings of the interior. Sert finished the paintings on all the walls in 1930 and, in 1931, the cathedral was declared Historic Artistic Monument. Shortly after, during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), the cathedral was burned and part of the building sank. Restored, Josep Maria Sert re-painted the walls, since the paintings had been totally destroyed in the fire. This new version of the oils was finished in 1945.
