seu d’urgell has an interesting history as despite being in Spain the Bishop is the Co - Prince of Andorra so it’s intrinsically linked with Andorra up the road . The cathedral is beautiful and for a Catholic Church is quite plain which I prefer . The church itself is very big and well worth a visit.

It was great to be in a cathedral built hundreds of years ago and still standing firm and strong, bare beauty 😍 worth the visit.

While we stopped in La Seu d'Urgell to make use of the Tesla Supercharger, we strolled into the small old town and surprised to see the old Cathedral nicely tucked away. The cathedral was not open but love to return some day for a more lenghly visit to this beautiful old town on the border with Andorra.

For a couple Euros, you can visit this unique cathedral, which is the only Romanesque cathedral in Catalonia.

On purpose I write in English and not in German, as many visitors should be warned :
First of all you have to pay 4 Euros entry into a most simple cathedral, it was a "first" for us. Secondly, beware of the old musician playing his guitar at the steps of the cathedral although he has a smoothing voice via his amplifier. My wife bought his CD and he explained some of the songs including song no. 21 which he had just sung before. Well, when we reached home again after 2 weeks and really looking forward to Spanish guitar music, what a disappointment: the CD shows 1 song with 7:16 minutes but no sound whatsoever. The crook at the steps of the cathedral sold us an empty CD. We reported this some days ago to the Tourism Office in La Seu d'Urgell but an answer might come "manana", or "days after manana" or most likely never. All this at the steps of the Bishop's !!! cathedral and that Bishop is also by the way the Co-Prince of Andorra, together with President Macron. Gracias, La Seu d'Urgell !

The cathedral is possibly the only remaining romanesque cathedral in this part of europe. Few windows that are high and small andmassive walls this place had other functions. Not as big as it appears from outside. The cloisters are a peacful space

The only way to access the Cathedral is to purchase a €4 ticket which provides access to the building plus the adjoining cloister and the adjacent museum. The Cathedral itself is simple and elegant. It is stripped back to reflect its original Romanesque origins which is very effective but will take no more than 10 minutes of your time. On three sides of the cloister the capitals are all twelfth century originals, each capital has a unique carving and the detail is exquisite; the fourth side was destroyed and rebuilt in the 16th century but this has none of the original detail and is relatively plain. Unfortunately there have also been some modern additions which spoil the ambiance a little.
The museum is housed over three floors but unless you have a real interest in ecclesiastical art, this might prove quite dull.
The Cathedral and cloisters are worth a visit providing you are happy to pay the €4 entry.

On the trip to Andorra, make a break. Unic Romanic cathedral from Caralunya, good conserved. Inside, splendid, and visit the museum. Nice claustrum
And have a Walk to the old town, and the Olympic parc (1992)

A classic Romanesque cathedral, It was built in the 6th century. Next to the twice weekly market (Tuesday and Saturday mornings from 0800 ). You will love it!

We were just walking around and stopped in. The place was amazing, both in terms of the cathedral as well as the museum. The quality of the artifacts rivaled the best of a major museum without the crowds.
