La Catedral de Barcelona

  • Brief description: Gothic cathedral built between the 13th and 15th centuries over the old Romanesque cathedral. It pays homage to Saint Eulalia, also known as the Mercè, patron saint of Barcelona. Inside, the central choir, the crypt of Saint Eulalia (before the main altar) and the tombs of Ramón Berenguer I and his wife, count and countess of Barcelona and authentic royal couple of Catalonia, are of especial interest. Access to the cloister, where you will discover a beautiful garden, can be gained from the aisle on the right-hand side.
  • Cost: free. Monday to Saturday, from 01.00pm to 05.00pm and Sunday and holydays, from 02.00pm to 05.00pm, you have to pay a contribution to get in.
  • Length of visit: 30 minutes.
  • Hours: all times except during mass.
  • How to get there: From Plaça Catalunya, walk down Portal del Á�ngel, a lovely pedestrian street brimming with stores. At the end, the street forks into two streets. Take the one on the left (Carrer dels Arcs) all the way to the Cathedral. 10 minutes.
  • Note: skirts, short pants and shoulder straps not allowed inside the church.
