The Barcelona Cathedral is dedicated to Eulalia, Barcelona's co-patron saint who refused to renounce her faith during the Christian persecution of Emperor Diocletian's rule, leading to her torture and execution at the age of just 13. Most of the work on this Gothic cathedral was done in the 14th Century, and it was finally completed around 1450. The roof, adorned with gargoyles, is one of the highlights of this architectural marvel. The Catalonian tradition of the 'dancing egg' is thought to have originated here.
