Here you must find 13 geese - as the age of St. Eulalia, which has died at the hands of the Gentiles. The white color of the geese symbolizes the purity and integrity of the Holy.

How to do?

1. Visit the Cathedral in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona.
2. You can get into the courtyard from the Comets Street.
3. Here you will see a fountain, where the geese splash, the palm trees, under which you can hide from the sun and a statue of St. George.
