Cathedral of San Pedro (Jaca, Huesca)
Built at the end of the 11th century by order of local King Sancho Ramirez, this cathedral was the first Romanesque church ever constructed in Aragon, then an autonomous community in northeast Spain. Originally designed according to Romanesque style, it was heavily modified throughout the following centuries so its Romanesque elements, such as a three-nave structure, are mostly visible in the interior of the church rather than in its exterior facade. Many of the church interior structures such as columns and walls were richly decorated with elaborate bas-reliefs illustrating scenes from the Bible, local fantasy tales and daily life.
