"Barcelona Cathedral" Barcelona Cathedral - Catedral de la Santa Creu i Santa Eulàlia Tip by JanPeter74

  Cathedral of Barcelona
by JanPeter74
 
 

The gothic cathedral of Barcelona is a real masterpiece. The very impressive building, with a very nice courtyard, filled with geese, lies in the barrio gotico, the gothic quarter, which is the medieval part of town. From the roof of the cathedral you have a magnificent view over the city. During summer, the square in front of the cathedral is filled with streetartists and the like.

When looking at a map, don't mix up this traditional cathedral and Gaudís "templo de la Sagrada Familia" (which is also regarded as a cathedral).

Address: Plaça de la Seu
Directions: Barri Gotic. Metro: Lines 1 and 3 (Catalunya Station) and Lines 2 and 4 (Urquinaona Station.)
