the baptistery

It is located at the right end of the main façade, at west wind. The architect Alexandre Soler i March built it in a Neo-Gothic style. It was inaugurated in 1921. It has an octagonal floor plan and a marble-worked baptismal font from the 17th century in the middle of the area.

Around it there is an ambulatory formed by eight cylindrical columns with capitals sculpted by Andreu Prunés. At the vault keystone there is a representation of the Holy Lamb. Its eight stained glasses are current made by Nídia Esquius. Outside its pyramidal shape becomes a characteristic image.
