Skip the Line: Cathedral of Barcelona Ticket

Christianization started very early in Barcelona. The martyrdom of Saint Eulàlia during the persecution of Christians under the Roman Emperor Diocletian (Emperor from 284 to 305) point to this. The oldest findings of an early Christian church date back to the 4th century. It was a three-aisled building. And although there are no scientifically proven documents from this period, it is believed that back then it already was a cathedral and therefore had a bishop's seat. In one of the chapels of this early church, the relics of Saint Eulàlia were kept. With the conquest of the Iberian Peninsula by the Moors in 711, they were hidden in a different church, presumably in Santa Maria del Mar or Santa María de las Arene. In 877 the bones were rediscovered. In 985 the simple cathedral survived the destruction of Barcelona by the Moorish ruler Almansor. The church remained standing until 1046, when the Count of Barcelona, Ramon Berenguer, began the construction of a Romanesque cathedral.
