SAN MIGUEL DE CARDONA
The Church of San Miguel de Cardona is a remarkable Gothic building located in Cardona’s historic town center. The church has its origin in the Romanesque period, specifically in the eleventh century. The structure was rebuilt in the course of the fourteenth century, raising a new construction in Gothic style, single nave and side chapels between the buttresses. This new construction was completed and consecrated in 1397. Later, in the sixteenth century, an octagonal-shaped crypt was added, where the relics of the martyred saints Celdonio and Ermenter were venerated.
