Barcelona Cathedral (Catedral de Barcelona) Tours

star-4.5
394 Reviews
Barcelona Cathedral (Catedral de Barcelona)
Standing tall over a medieval square in the center of the Gothic Quarter, the Barcelona Cathedral (Catedral de Barcelona) 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 Barcelona Cathedral 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 Barcelona Cathedral 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.

Skip the Line: Cathedral of Barcelona Ticket

Skip the Line: Cathedral of Barcelona Ticket

Christianization started very early in Barcelona. The martyrdom of Saint Eulàlia during the persecution of Christians under the Roman Emperor Diocletian (Emperor from 284 to 305) point to this. The oldest findings of an early Christian church date back to the 4th century. It was a three-aisled building. And although there are no scientifically proven documents from this period, it is believed that back then it already was a cathedral and therefore had a bishop's seat. In one of the chapels of this early church, the relics of Saint Eulàlia were kept. With the conquest of the Iberian Peninsula by the Moors in 711, they were hidden in a different church, presumably in Santa Maria del Mar or Santa María de las Arene. In 877 the bones were rediscovered. In 985 the simple cathedral survived the destruction of Barcelona by the Moorish ruler Almansor. The church remained standing until 1046, when the Count of Barcelona, Ramon Berenguer, began the construction of a Romanesque cathedral.
