Baixada de Santa Eulàlia (Slope of Santa Eulàlia)
Baixada de Santa Eulàlia (Slope of Santa Eulàlia) Review
Straight out from the side door of the cathedral cloister down Carrer Sant Sever past the Esglèsia de Sant Sever is the tiny overhead niche dedicated to Santa Eulàlia, the city's most honored martyr. You look up at this shrine, which is in a kind of alcove. Down this hill, or baixada (descent), Eulàlia was rolled in a barrel filled with—as the Jacint Verdaguer verse in ceramic tile on the wall reads—glavis i ganivets de dos talls (swords and double-edged knives), the final of the 13 tortures to which the 4th-century martyr was subjected before her crucifixion at Plaça del Pedró.
