Neighborhood: Gothic Quarter, Raval & La Ribera
Overview

This is one of the oldest churches in Barcelona and is dedicated to the two martyrs, Justo and Pastor, who were the subjects of veneration during the 4th Century. However, much of the building is part of the later Visigothic construction. Back in the days of Ramón Berenguer "el Viejo" (11th Century), this parish church was used as a cathedral while the Romanesque cathedral was being built. The 14th-century Gothic building work is typical of the church architecture of the time. Relics belonging to both saints are kept in a small chest from the cathedral of Narbonne donated by James I's wife.
