Girona / 1999 | 2001-2009

Team:  Fuses-Viader + Jordi Paulí + Montse Nogués + Josep Pla

 

Elaboration of the Master Plan (1999) and several works of restoration: the baroque facade (2001), the belfry (2003) and the north facade (2009-2011). At the lattest, a blocked large window was opened and a new stained-glass window established, according to a design of the Irish artist Sean Scully.

In all the interventions there have been done works of cleanliness, recovery of lost elements of stone, waterproofing, consolidation and protection, with special attention to the Girona nummulitic, a limestone compacts, of granulated coarse aspect and that takes the massive presence of fossils as the  more marked characteristic.
