Bell tower of Vic Cathedral and Abbot Oliba

In the lower part of the Vic's historic center, near the river, were founded in the eleventh century cathedral churches and other buildings that comprised the episcopal freehold. Of that time remain today in the crypt and Romanesque bell tower.
This bell tower of Cathedral is a good example of Romanesque architecture in Catalonia. Square floor plan, is made of small and regular ashlars.
The architectural ornamentation is a compendium of the Romanesque art: blind arches, pilasters and friezes of teeth of saw adorn the different floors of the belfry.
