  • This monument dates from the year 1673 and was the work of Benet Parés and Josep Darder. Given its date of opening, it is the oldest monument in the city of Barcelona. The first image of Santa Eulalia was of wood and the deterioration that had decided to replace it with another in the year 1687, the work of Llàtzer Tramulles and Lluís Bonifaç. He remained until it was destroyed in 1936 during the Civil war so the current image dates from 1951 and is the work of sculptor Frederic Marès.

  • Wander the streets near the hotel where we stayed during our visit to Barcelona, in the popular district of el Raval we find a small square, cross streets with cars and shops whose center is presisdido by a high column on the that is the typical figure of a virgin or a santa that only can be identified by the symbolism of the cross shaped X carrying in the hands of Santa Eulalia. This Catholic cristina image strikingly contrasts between that at his feet run people from Muslim-majority countries and stores that have formed a kind of bustling and lively multicultural colony in the neighborhood. The monument serves as a reference point to orient themselves and not get lost in the crossroads of narrow streets, since most streets are very similar. But it is not worth much stopping to look at it by the height that is just nothing and its value is distinguished artistic is low, not to say zero.
