The image of Saint Charlemagne is shown in this Gothic polychrome alabaster sculpture. The technique of sculptor Jaume Cascalls is impressive, and it shows what seems to be a crypto-portrait of King Peter IV of Aragon. The grotesque monsters that the saint steps on also draw the visitor's attention.
