Cathedral of Santa Eulalia

Local nameCatedral de la Santa Creu i Santa Eulàlia
LocationGothic Quarter, Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona's main cathedral is the seat of the Archbishop of Barcelona and a lavish showcase of Gothic architecture - its high ceilings and gargoyles are truly breathtaking.

The construction of the main building started in 1298 and wasn't finished until 1460. The work on the facade began much later, in 1892, and it was completed in 1913. Dedicated to the patron saint of Barcelona, the interior boasts a beautiful high altarpiece designed by the artist Pedro Costa. When inside, also note the organ under the bell tower and the beautiful stained-glass windows.

Visit the chapel to see marvelous Gothic altarpieces and a small museum that displays Gothic paintings. You can also climb to the roof, but only with a ticket. The entrance to the Cathedral and the cloister is free of charge in the mornings and in the evenings. If you want to visit between 1 pm and 5:30 pm though, you will need to give a donation to the church first.
