BARCELONA ~ Spain (Gothic Quarters)
The Barcelona Cathedral (Catedral de la Santa Cruz y Santa Eulalia) also known as La Seu dates back to 1450, but it’s not its age that is most impressive. The immense cathedral is a testament to architectural achievement, and its roof is famous for being peppered with numerous ornate gargoyles. It is one of the best examples of Gothic architecture in Europe, and the cathedral is a mecca for historians, architects or people who just love to look at beautiful things. Santa Eulalia’s body is also here, entombed in the crypt.
