One More from Spain: Photos from the Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia

While we visited Barcelona primarily to visit the Segrada Familia Basilica (part one, part two), we also made time to visit the Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia. This cathedral is also quite beautiful. It's also quite a bit more traditional than the Segrada Familia Basilica. Take a look!

Now this is a beautiful gothic building!

The altar, crucifix and stained glass windows of the cathedral

Numerous side altars display beautiful scenes from Sacred Scripture and the lives of the saints

Another side altar

The cloister is something of an island inside the cathedral, complete with a gorgeous view of palm trees and the building's exterior. (How many buildings offer a beautiful view of the exterior form inside?)
