I share in La Vanguardia Readers' Photos this series of photographs of the Girona Cathedral captured from the stone bridge, at ten at night.
The stone bridge belonging to the Inventory of the Architectural Heritage of Catalonia. It crosses the Onyar River, where it creates a geometric game of reflections in its waters, even at night. And even more so now with the Christmas lighting.
It was built during the reign of Elizabeth II. This bridge replaced a previous one of medieval origin known as Pont de Sant Francesc or Pont de Frasmenors.
The construction of the Pont de Pedra de Girona began in 1850, after moving the market to the Palanca d'en Vila. Two years later, in 1852, the works stopped, and it was not until 1854 when they were resumed.
Although the bridge ended up being inaugurated in 1856, the passage of time and new trends have subjected it to some renovations. Currently, it is one of the tourist attractions.
The cathedral of Santa María de Girona is located at the highest point of the city. It has the widest Gothic nave in the world, with a total width of 22.98 meters. The temple hides many jewels beyond its dimensions, details of the interior and exterior.
