Right in front of the main altar, a dozen or so steps lead down to the crypt, an underground vaulted catacomb that contains the remarkable alabaster sarcophagus of Santa Eulalia, the thirteen-year old fourth-century Spanish martyr and co-patron saint of Barcelona. When visiting the crypt, probe into the three panels of sculptured figures that adorn her coffin. These narrate in pictorial detail her gruesome life and martyrdom.
