Barcelona’s Cathedral has the full title of “Catedral de la Santa Creu i Santa Eulàlia”. It is dedicated to one of Catalonia’s two patron saints, the second being Sant Jordi. Santa Eulàlia was only 13 years old when she was martyred, and her body lies buried under the high altar. Thirteen white geese live inside the cloiser and represent each year of her young life.
Visiting the Cathedral is free from 8:00-12:45 (13:45 weekends and holidays) and 17:15-19:30. During the middle of the day a 6€ donation is requested. Traditional mass serices take placed daily, and visitors can also attend confession and offer prayer candles in the chapels. You can visit the roof of the building for great views of the Gothic Quarter.
