Elne Cathedral was built in the 11C and remained a cathedral until the 17C. During the 12-14C it built a splendid Cloister which contains a number of capitals from before the Gothic period on the outer north wall of the church in the first side of the Cloister. The other three sides of the Cloister contain a large number of bas-reliefs showing events of the life of Jesus. The West End of the buiding is topped on the South by a Tower and Belfry, while there is a shorter Tower at the North end. Beyond the East end a couple of miles off is the Sea. The apsidial end has an arch while the west has a plain entrance.
