The second treasury room is dominated by the Corpus Monstrance, made by the Girona craftsman Francesc Artau in 1438. It mimics architectural structures with gilded silver, enamel and precious stones, and is decorated with saints. It is surrounded by four large processional crosses: a varnished cross (14th century), a gold cross (with natural pearls and delicate glazes, from the early 16th century) a cross from the monks (14th century) and a gilded silver cross (16th century).
