other works by berenguer de montagut

In the city of Manresa the master worker Berenguer de Montagut also built the Pont Nou bridge, commissioned in 1318, an interesting work of engineering and one of the largest viaducts of Catalonia; also the Carme church, which was commissioned one day before the See’s one, and lately destroyed during the Spanish Civil War.

Abroad Manresa, with Bernat Despuig, projected the Santa Maria del Mar basilica in Barcelona, and directed the first phase of this work. It is also attributed to him the work of the Mare de Déu del Lledó sanctuary, in Valls, the city where he might be native from. Some expert has attributed him, mistakenly, the project of the Palma de Mallorca cathedral.
