Description

The cathedral of Jaca is considered to be one of the most important temples of the first Romanesque Spanish. It was constructed from 1077 on order of the king Sancho Ramirez. There preserves his basic Romanesque structure: with plant basilical of three naves of five sections with his corresponding aligned apses, two doors of access and a slender dome. In the southern apse there are located the elements that summarize the architectural language typical of the Romanesque jaqués, spread later by the whole route jacobea: the chequerwork (that passes in the shape of fascia) and the balls, which are present in the interior supports.
