La Catedral Basílica Metropolitana de Barcelona, or La Seu

Barcelona Seu-4

Barcelona’s stunning 15th-century Gothic cathedral is dedicated to local martyr Santa Eulàlia, whose tomb rests in a crypt below the high altar.

The cathedral sits on the site previously occupied by a Roman temple and a Christian basilica. The neo-Gothic façade is relatively new, having been completed in the 19th century.

I didn’t get to spend much time in the 14th-century cloister since the cathedral was closing, but it is filled with tropical plants and white geese that represent the virginity of Santa Eulàlia.
