barcelona cathedral in barcelona, spain

Unlike the Sagrada Familia (known as a church and not a cathedral), the Barcelona Cathedral holds the seat of the Archbishop of Barcelona, Spain.  This beautiful gothic structure was built between the 13th and 15th centuries, dedicated to Eulalia of Barcelona (co-patron saint of Barcelona), a young virgin who suffered martyrdom during Roman times.  Saint Eulalia's body is entombed in the cathedral's crypt.
