Dated to late 12th and early 13th centuries, the Cathedral of Teruel isa complex building whose greatest treasure is the Mudejar roof thatcovers the central space, declared World Heritage by UNESCO in1986. There are some basic unknown facts about this roof, such aswho built it, how, when or what it represents. There are manytheories that attempt to clarify these uncertainties, but there is notmuch historical documentation available. During the years 2008 and2009, a restoration of the church was conducted and part of the roofand walls remained uncovered for a short period of time. Using thattemporal and unique chance, a wide stratigraphical and buildinganalysis of the central nave walls and their joints with the roof wascarried out. Thanks to this work, some important results have beendiscovered concerning the modifications suffered by the building. Atthe same time, other evidences help to further going within theknowledge of the form of the church at its earliest stages.
