Cathedral of Barcelona (La Seu)

1298-1448





An earlier Christian church once existed on this site. Although the Romanesque chapel of Santa Llúcia (on the far right facade) remains, most of the cathedral is clearly Gothic. The crypt contains the remains of Santa Eulàlia, the first patron saint of Barcelona and the saint to whom the cathedral is dedicated; the white geese in the 14th century cloister are said to represent her purity.
