I thought La Sagrada Familia was Barcelona’s Cathedral when it fact it is not. Talking to some waiters over a seafood dinner the previous night, Barcelona’s Cathedral, The Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia, is situated in the Gothic Quarter at Plaza de la Seu.
It is an old Gothic Cathedral, construction started in the 13th century. I think it is a shame that it is now surrounded and butted up to other buildings making it difficult to take a pleasing image of the exterior. One interesting fact, of many, is that 13 white geese are kept in the inner cloister. I’ll let you find out why.
The interior is a delight to photograph as there are many points of interest. The first image above was taken from the back of the Cathedral. I’m getting better at my attention to detail, but I still see so many things wrong with this composition. Maybe one day I’ll get it right
The next image is of the organ that is situated on the west side of the Cathedral. It is a beautiful and intricate design which one cannot fully appreciate at the time as it is quite dark in the Cathedral.
It was a pleasure processing these images and seeing a lot more now, compared to what I could see at the time. One of the wonders and delights of HDR photography.
