about barcelona cathedral

Located right in the heart of Barcelona, in its famous Gothic district is the city's first, and undoubtedly the most magnificent Gothic cathedral, known as La Seu or the Barcelona Cathedral. It is said that the first stone of the current church was put in place in the 13th century, but thanks to all the ornate architecture and larger than life structure, it wasn't until the early 20th century before the cathedral was completed.

The magnificent interiors of the cathedral consist of a wide nave, brought to life by a large, beauteous 15th century stained-glass window. The nave is flanked on both sides with aisles with 28 side chapels. Do pay special attention to the tombs of Count Ramón Berenguer I and his wife when here.

The highlight of this cathedral is the crypt below the Capella Major (chancel) which is said to contain the sarcophagus of Santa Eulalia. One can also see the beautiful choir at the center of the nave with magnificently carved choir stalls at the cathedral. The enclosure around this choir is intricately decorated with relics that narrate the life of Santa Eulalia.
