Cathedral of Barcelona
Standing tall over a medieval square in the center of the Gothic Quarter, the Barcelona Cathedral (Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia) is the seat of the Archbishop of Spain and a major landmark of the city. The cathedral is known for its 14th-century cloister full of palm trees and a Gothic portico where 13 geese wander.
 
The Basics
A major landmark in Barcelona, the cathedral is featured on nearly every sightseeing excursion, from bicycle tours to tapas crawls. Worshipers can enter for free, while there’s a donation requested for cultural visits, as well as for access to the choir and rooftop terraces, which offer one of the best views over medieval Barcelona. Don’t miss a trip down to the crypt to see the tomb of Santa Eulalia and the reliefs depicting her martyrdom.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Cathedral of Barcelona is a must-visit for history buffs, spiritual travelers, and first-time visitors.
  • Remember to dress respectfully by wearing clothes that cover your shoulders and extend to your knees or lower ; the cathedral is an active place of worship.
  • The cathedral is wheelchair accessible; there’s an accessible entrance at the cloister on Carrer del Bisbe.
 
How to Get There
The Barcelona Cathedral is centrally located and easy to reach on foot from anywhere in the Old City. From other areas of the city, take the metro to Liceu (Green Line) or Jaume I (Yellow Line), or ride the hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus to Catedral-Gotic station.
 
When to Get There
The cathedral is open daily throughout the week for worship during the morning and evening hours, and for cultural visits during the afternoon. Plan to visit on a weekday during the shoulder season (October to April) to enjoy the cathedral with smaller crowds.
 
The Geese of Saint Eulalia
The palm-filled cloister of the Cathedral of Barcelona is home to 13 special residents, a flock of geese that have been enjoying the garden and fountains since medieval days. The number of geese is believed to represent the age of Eulalia, the city’s patron saint, at the time she was martyred.
