The Cathedral monstrance

© Pep Escoda

The monstrance, made in 1922, replaced another piece of silverwork dating from the 15th century which disappeared during the French War. The artist who worked on the monstrance was Barcelonan Bernadí Martorell i Puig, the architect of the Convent of the Teresian Order on the Rambla in Tarragona. The work was carried out at the Sanosa i Companyia Silverworks in Barcelona by silversmiths Miralles and Baguers. The monstrance, conceived along obvious Neo-Gothic lines, consists of a canopy, a seat, the monstrance itself, a crown and a ceremonial carriage. It can be found in the Chapel of Corpus Christi (in the Cathedral's cloister).
