Barcelona Cathedral

Barcelona Cathedral - amazingly beautiful example of Gothic style with clearly defying Catalan motifs. Despite its massiveness, provoking the viewer thinking about joyless Middle Ages, the cathedral boasts a mass of fine details - pompous gothic "socket" on the main entrance, slender columns and spiers, flying up turrets. But the main attractions are located within a - a sculpture of Christ with the leader of the Catalan fleet, 13 white geese in praise of the Holy Eulalia and breathtaking views of Barcelona from the dome of the cathedral.
The construction of Barcelona Cathedral (or Cathedral of Santa Eulalia) was slow and full of interruptions. Construction began in the 13th century, on top of a roman cathedral, but what's interesting is that the roman cathedral was built on top of a Visigothic cathedral! Barcelona Cathedral took around 150 years to complete, and it wasn't until the end of the 19th century that the building was expanded from a modest building to the fancy neo-gothic one we see today.
The Cathedral was originally built in the Catalan gothic style with three naves and a single apse. It has transformed a lot since then, into a neo-gothic style. The buttresses divide the central space from the various side chapels. The building has huge windows and two large bell towers. It has five entry points; the main one, Door of Saint Ivo, Door of Mercy, Door of Santa Eulalia, and Door of Santa Lucia. It is home to enclaves of artistic and cultural interest, such as the main alter, the crypt of Santa Eulalia, the vaults, as well as a choir and organ. Of course there is much more to discover like the old and new chapter hall, the Cathedral Musuem, cloister, and the various chapels and tombs.
