The Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia

Barcelona, Spain


Kristina Shvets

This magnificent Gothic church sharing the square with the Christmas market is hard to miss. It was completed in 1448 to commemorate the city’s co-patron saint – Eulalia of Barcelona. Get inside to admire spectacular carved choir stalls, the nave flanked by chapels and exquisite baroque altars.
The most beautiful part of the cathedral is the typical Gothic cloister courtyard. Adorned with beautiful palm trees and bathing in sunlight it is famous for its Well of the Geese, where you will find 13 white geese, symbolising the martyrdom of Saint Eulalia, who lost her life at 13 refusing to dismiss Jesus.
