  Antique market outside the cathedral
by Ekaterinburg
 
 

Outside the cathedral the Placa de la Seu was busy with stalls and browsing consumers. The stalls were part of the Sunday antiques/bric-a-brac market and there was quite a buzz with lots of banter between stallholders and prospective customers. This market is a local one and only has enough stalls to fit on the small placa in front of the church. This is quite a small space which ends precipitously over the steps down to Carrer Major. The view from here is fabulous and the stalls had such a selection of interesting old books,prints, fans etc., that it was difficult to drag oneself away. Behind the stalls is the facade of the cathedral, which was never completely finished but as you can see in the photo ( if you click) has some beautiful sculpted statues on the Romanesque entrance.

Address: Placa de la Seu
Directions: Directly in front of the cathedral at the top of Placa Major.
