fire of 1811

On November 11, 1811 a terrible fire broke out and destroyed part of the Cathedral. The roof that covered the sanctuary area collapsed entirely. However, the ceiling of the three naves was saved and was also subject to reconstruction. The fire devastated not only part of the ceiling, but also the organ and the choir, with some of the tombs also being damaged. The reconstruction lasted until October 1837, during which the mosaics were also restored.
