Barcelona Cathedral - Catedral de la Santa Creu i Santa EulÓlia, Barcelona: 138 reviews and 273 photos
Santa Eulalia/La Seu Cathedral in the center of the Barri Gotic district, downtown Barcelona has a few items unique to it. One we found in the two guide books (other than Virtual Tourist) we used, Lonely Planet and DK, the statue of Saint George battling the dragon. It was mentioned in both and we looked for it in the cathedral and only came across it by chance. This was our fault since we were looking for a big impressive thing...turns out it is only about 50 centimeters high and sits on top of a small water fountain as you can see in the photo.
The other unique thing we found here was the gaggle of geese. No they do not make foie gras or golden eggs, they just "are". After we saw them I looked it up and apparently there are no known facts, but several theories/legends about the virginity of Saint Eulalia or Rome, no not the virginity of Rome, the greatness.
