Santa Maria Cathedral or Cathedral of St Mary of Girona, Eiffel bridge and houses overlooking the river Onyar in the town of Girona, at the confluence of the rivers Ter, Onyar, Galligants and Guell, Catalonia, Spain. The cathedral was begun in the 11th century in Romanesque style, and later continued in the 14th century in Catalan Gothic style, redesigned by Pere Sacoma in 1312 and built by the school of Mallorcan architect Jaume Fabre. Of the original Romanesque building only the 12th century cloister and a bell tower remain. The cathedral was completed in the 18th century. Here we see the Baroque facade and new octagonal bell tower, begun in 1590 and completed in the 18th century, which houses 6 bells. Picture by Manuel Cohen
