The Catedral de la Santa Creu i Santa Eulàlia (“Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia”), also known as Barcelona Cathedral, is the Gothic cathedral and seat of the Archbishop of Barcelona. The cathedral was constructed from the 13th to 15th centuries, with the principal work done in the 14th century. The cloister, which encloses the Font de les Oques (“Well of the Geese“) was completed in 1448. In the late 19th century, the neo-Gothic façade was constructed over the nondescript exterior that was common to Catalan churches. The roof is notable for its gargoyles, featuring a wide range of animals, both domestic and mythical.

Tip: this attraction is located in the Barri Gòtic area where there are many attractions and museums so it might be worth to plan a combined visit.
