The facade of the cathedral was not actually completed until 1906, even though it seems older.

It’s difficult to take in the whole facade, because it is separated from the Bishop’s Palace by a rather narrow street, but you cannot fail to be impressed by the two spectacular arches that start out from the facade, cross the street and join at the bell tower of the palace.

The facade, flanked by two towers, has a Gothic portal dating to 1534, topped by a niche in which you can admire a fifteenth-century Madonna. On the portal is a relief depicting Roger on horseback stepping on a Muslim.
