Gothic Cathedral – Barcelona

Gothic Cathedral - Barcelona

Gothic Cathedral, Barcelona

In Barcelona, after work was done with, got time to just be a tourist and do a lot of sightseeing. On a Friday evening, walking past the Gothic cathedral, the doors were open, and I got to go in. This cathderal, full name \’Catedral de la Santa Creu i Santa Eulalia\’ is the first church in Europe I have visited and I was blown away at how gorgeous the interiors are – the soaring vaults and transepts – amazing – and the decorations and carvings (and bling) inside this gothic cathedral is indeed elaborate. I found out that this cathedral is dedicated to St.Eulalia, a co-patron saint of Barcelona who achieved sainthood by being tortured by the Romans when she was a young virgin of 13!

  1. beautiful composition and editing. keeps taking me to the ceiling again and again. Just wish the Green plastic on the left was not so bright. Loads of clarity and detail.
