What Visitors Say About Cathedral of Barcelona
This gothic cathedral is a piece of art. Although probably lost its touristy significance due to the Sagrada Familia, the church is still a great attraction to visit. The immensely large interior with roof with it's gargoyles is a sight to see. The church is dedicated to Eulalia of Barcelona, who suffered martyrdom during the Roman times of the city. The body of Saint Eulalia is entombed in the cathedrals crypt which is located right below the altar. The cathedral also run a small museum as well but I forgot the contents of the museum. Overall visiting this church was a great experience.
