Abstract. In recent years, the development of massive data capture techniques such as Terrestrial Laser Scanner (TLS) have made it possible to develop new procedures to evaluate architectural heritage with a high level of accuracy. The study proposes a workflow to identify formal anomalies in the main elements that form a structural bay of the apse of the Cathedral of Girona, studying arches, vaults, buttresses and pillars. The methodology is based on different two-dimensional and three-dimensional procedures, and the database obtained that could help in future research to relate the results with the different construction phases and being applicable to other constructions of similar typology.
