The cathedral is from the Visigothic period, a basilica with three aisles and central apse. Two buildings are attached to the cathedral at its extreme N and S: the latter is called St. Vincent’s Prison, though it is actually a bishop’s funerary church, cruciform with square apse, also containing a second grave dated to ca. 560; the building to the N is also cruciform, perhaps a baptistery or another funerary environment. The complex and the deposition of St. Vincent’s relics there have been traditionally attributed to Justinian, but more recent studies seem to attribute it to Anesius, another bishop of the city.
