The first impression that Vic gives is of a gloomy, unattractive industrial city, in which an unpleasant climate reigns, with a lot of rain and frequent fogs. But this should not darken the desire to visit this city, because Vic has a lot to show and delight with architectural sights, and not only that.
Vic is interesting to visit, for example, to learn something about the centuries-old traditions in trade and the sausage industry. Plaza Mayor is a square that is interesting to visit, especially every Thursday and Saturday when a market is organized there. Very often one can hear about him that he is the personification of Vic's continuity. It also has a number of galleries to explore, as well as a drink in its colorful cafes. Gothic houses and baroque and lavish extravagant buildings from the 19th century give an unadulterated charm to its appearance, but perhaps the most interesting is the whimsical neo-Gothic building Casa Comella.
The oldest building in Vic is the restored Roman temple from the 2nd century, rising next to the ruins of Palau dels Montcada. Descending the slope one comes upon the vast cathedral of Vitus – a mix of styles from Romanesque to Neoclassical. It should be seen for its spectacular frescoes in dark gold and red, by Josep Maria Sert. This cathedral in Vic houses the artist's tomb, which is laid out in a beautiful Gothic gallery. The crypt of the cathedral attracts attention with its remarkable capitals from the X-XI centuries.
Valuables from Vic's episcopal art collection are on display at the Hospital de la Santa Creu temporarily until the new museum next to the cathedral is completed. It should not be overlooked that the Episcopal Museum of Vic has assembled the most significant and complete collection of medieval Catalan art.
