the stained glass

The See has a big rose window at the main façade; another little one above the south portal, and thirty-storied polychrome stained glasses that respond to a three different working patterns. They are not the ones before the 1714 burning; some are from the 19th century and others back to fifty years ago. Arranged in two levels, the upper one corresponds to the nave and the lower to the radiating chapels;

they bring outside light and a great decorative elegance. Francesc Morell and Apel·les Mestres designed the ancient ones; the others are by Joan Vila, done after the 1936-1939 damashes. It has to be added the ones at the baptistery, which are a current work done in 2008 by Nídia Esquius.
