Barcelona Cathedral (Cathedral)

Barcelona Cathedral

Barcelona Cathedral - A neo-gothic wonder with lots of history and artistic value

Barcelona Cathedral can be found in the heart of the city and is a centre of history, politics, and of course, religion. The more than 2000 year history of Barcelona has its origins in what we now called the Gothic Quarter of the city, so it's no surprise that the cathedral that stands before visitors today was built over an old roman cathedral, with roman walls still remaining in the close vicinity. We've included Barcelona Cathedral in our guide to the churches of Barcelona.

Barcelona Cathedral

A building with history beaming from the walls

The construction of Barcelona Cathedral (or Cathedral of Santa Eulalia) was slow and full of interruptions. Construction began in the 13th century, on top of a roman cathedral, but what's interesting is that the roman cathedral was built on top of a Visigothic cathedral! Barcelona Cathedral took around 150 years to complete, and it wasn't until the end of the 19th century that the building was expanded from a modest building to the fancy neo-gothic one we see today.

Architecture full of artistic interest

The Cathedral was originally built in the Catalan gothic style with three naves and a single apse. It has transformed a lot since then, into a neo-gothic style. The buttresses divide the central space from the various side chapels. The building has huge windows and two large bell towers. It has five entry points; the main one, Door of Saint Ivo, Door of Mercy, Door of Santa Eulalia, and Door of Santa Lucia. It is home to enclaves of artistic and cultural interest, such as the main alter, the crypt of Santa Eulalia, the vaults, as well as a choir and organ. Of course there is much more to discover like the old and new chapter hall, the Cathedral Musuem, cloister, and the various chapels and tombs.
