The town of Vic, located in the Osona region,
has thousands of activities and places to visit and do tourism. Stroll through the historic center, enjoy the Jewish heritage, the Roman Temple of the s. II, the cathedral, the Episcopal Museum of Vic among other museums and art galleries in the city and attend the fairs that the city often hosts.
The city of Vic was founded in the 1st century AD by the Romans
. However, Vic already existed for many years, since the ancient Iberian tribe of the Ausetans settled there, and made the current population of Vic their capital, and called it Ausa, the original name in latin
In the 6th century Vic was named episcopal see, but the demographic and economic growth of the population did not arrive until the 18th century. The city grew
and this fact favored the appearance of several sculpture and architecture workshops, and the construction of numerous well-known buildings, such as the current cathedral.
During the Carline wars, the city suffered an economic downturn and many industries moved to the Ter basin. A few years later, specifically in 1875 with the creation of the Barcelona-Vic railway,
the city quickly recovered until today. However, with the arrival of the civil war and the Franco regime, social life in Vic was affected, as it also happened throughout the country. During the last forty years, the city has been recovering its importance and weight: Vic has become one of the most important cities in Catalonia.
In the 11th century , the cathedral churches were founded
among other buildings in the lower part of the historic center, near the river. Today, the neoclassical cathedral highlights the Gothic cloister built in the 14th century and the alabaster altarpiece by Pere Oller, in the same style. However, of all the buildings that were there when it was built, today only the crypt and the Romanesque bell tower remain. The decoration of the mura
l in the central nave is also worth noting.
