Gothic Area of Barcelona

Despite being named after its elegant Gothic buildings from the 13-15th century this area is actually much older, since Roman relics have been found here. From this period some parts of the Barcelona wall have survived (4 centuries), and can be see in main places. During the 19 century., les monuments the most seriously damaged monuments were the focus of an extremely careful restoration programme, which gave the quarter its elegant appearance.

The Cathederal

The site of the cathedral was occupied by a basilica with three naves, destroyed by Almanzor in 925, remains of which are to be found in the subsoil and can be visited, and later by the Romanesque cathedral, begun in 1046 and consecrated in 1058. The present cathedral, begun in 1298, taking advantage of elements of the previous one, consists of three naves and an apse, covered with pointed arches. Most of the church as well as the cloister was built between 1365 and 1388, under the direction of Bernat Roca, the successor to Jacobus Fabre. Although the building was completed in mid-15C, the main facade was not built till the early years of 20C. Among the areas of interest, the most noteworthy are the Romanesque door of San Ivo (Sant Iu), in the older wing, in los Condes Street and the chapel of the Cristo de Lepanto, formerly the Sala Capitular, which is the outstanding part of the whole building, covered with a stellar vault.
