Museu de la Catedral, Barcelona

(4.4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Housed within the chapterhouse of the Barcelona Cathedral, Museu de la Catedral displays religious works of art once used in official religious ceremonies. Highlights of the museum's collection include "The Pieta" by Bartolome Bermejo, a Spanish artist who employed Flemish painting techniques, and a picture of the glorification of St. Oleguer and St. Eulalia, which hangs over the vault. The Gothic chamber, once a meeting place for the cathedral chapter, also contains the St. Sever galleries, which feature exhibitions of Baroque and contemporary art. After viewing the works below the cathedral, go above ground to explore the cathedral itself. From the roof, enjoy a view of Barcelona from above. A visit to Museu de la Catedral represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Barcelona trip itinerary builder to plot your vacation.

  • The cathedral is very beautiful and worth seeing. Don't miss the chance to take the elevator up to the roof. The views are wonderful. You access it from one of the side chapels so it is easy to miss u...  more »

  • It is impossible to pass by this building without stopping to watch it and that is only from the outside in their interiors, the Majesty of its architectural art continues. It is worth it!

  • Very beautiful. Be sure to wear "proper" clothing or they wont let in without a coverage (you can buy for 2 Euros next to the church). Make sure to check out the back entrance where you can fond a beautiful fountain inside a patio.
  • Gothic gem with a twist. Beautiful architecture and ornate artwork: gildings, paintings sculptures in wood and stone. Some of the side chapels dating from the early 15 century, astonishing courtyard with fountains, greenery and a small flock of well fed geese. These startle the worshippers and visitors alike with their sudden loud honking, bringing in a sense of humour into the somber carhedral. If you exit on the east side of the courtyard, there are some huge columns from a roman Temple Augusta (1st century) hidden in a little passage.
  • It ain't the Gothic Quarter for no reason. Nice to stroll around the area and find the impressive Barcelona Cathedral, which was a good break from all the Gaudi masterpieces. It's free! It would've been nice to see the view from the top, as mentioned by the other reviews. IG 📷: thearchitectdraws
  • Absolutely amazing. A beautiful gothic cathedral. Sometimes during sundays there are people dancing in the front of the cathedral. Go there and live a truly catalan experience
  • Nice walk in it and free. Exterior was old and impressive but no gothic building could compare with Duomo. Fat gooses were very cute.
