The Gothic period did not bring any major transformation to the ensemble of Sant Pere in terms of architecture. We do preserve, however, very notable examples of painting, both mural and table.

Santa Maria had its apse completely painted, and remained so until 1937, when the gothic paintings were removed. They were fitted on wooden frames and are now preserved in the storage rooms of the Terrassa Museum.

Gothic murals are also preserved in the north nave of the Church of Sant Pere, probably from the mid-14th century.

Throughout the 15th century, the various altars of the church of Sant Pere were covered with Gothic altarpieces: Sant Pere’s main altarpiece (1411), the altarpiece of Sant Miquel (1450) and of Saints Abdó and Senén (Abdon and Sennen). (1458).
