CATHEDRAL (Catedral) is the highlight of the Barcelona's Old City.  The grandiose structure with its many side chapels, has somehow been squeezed into the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter.  The church is flanked by walls built by the Romans 1000 years before its construction.  The cathedral was begun in the 13th Century and finished in the 15th Century.  More additions, including its facade, were made in the 19th Century.  Today there are 29 side chapels within the cathedral, and it's cloister holds a garden with a pond and geese.

Barcelona's Cathedral is open Monday to Friday, 8am-1:30pm and 4pm-7:30pm; Saturdays and Sundays 10am-1pm.  The Cathedral also houses a museum, which is open Monday to Friday 10am-1pm and 4pm-6:3-pm; Saturdays and Sundays 10am-1pm.
