Itinerary A

[3] A Catalan Gothic portico

One can still admire the skill with which Antonio Gambara created the portico, in 1429, using reused materials. The stone’s durability was moulded by the skilful hands of the Magister, who envisaged a work of art in the Catalan Gothic style. Entrance is gained through three pointed arches resting on reused columns with capitals decorated with plant motifs. The three arches are decorated with a twisted frame.
