St. Peter the Apostle Vic Romanesque Cathedral
Cathedral dates from 1803 by architect Josep Moreto i Codina in neoclassical style. The visit includes the gothic styled cloisters from the 14th century.
Vic Roman Temple is thought to date from the 2nd Century AD at the hight of the roman Empire. If The roman Temple was still in use by the 4th century it would have closed during the persecution of pagans as the Roman Empire was converting to Christianity. In the 11th century the temple was burried under the structure of the medieval els Montcada Castle, built to defend the medival city. The castle later became the residence of the Veguers and finally, the prison of Vic.
The Roman Temple of Vic measures 12.1m by 10.1m (40ft by 33ft).
This building is currently used for cultural activities and is run by the Patronat d'Estudis Osonencs. When I visited it contained a contemporary art collection.
The temple is free to enter but has limited opening hours. To the sides of the temple you can see the castle remains.
Address: Carrer del Pare Xifré, Vic. 8500
For the Vic day trip I pack a small 10L rucksack with a fleece jersey and if the weather forecast says rain, a waterproof poncho.
The Roman Temple is only accesible via steps.
