Top part of a boundary cross from the bridge of Sant Miquel, in Balaguer, from the first half of the 15th century

Top part of a boundary cross, consisting of a decorative cluster of a frieze of saints from the pinnacle, without the cross itself, which disappeared a long time ago. There are eight figures of saints, in high relief, each standing on a small individual plinth. The decoration with plant motifs under a single baldachin ends in the large pinnacle which crowns the whole. The saints are: St Michael, St Catherine, St Peter, St Paul, St Raymond of Penyafort, St Andrew and St James. Its making has been attributed to a workshop close to sculptor Pere Joan.
