Saint Eulalia (c.290-303), co-patron saint of Barcelona, was a 13-year-old Roman Christian who suffered martyrdom in Barcelona during the persecution of Christians during the reign of emperor Diocletian. The Romans subjected her to thirteen tortures, including cutting off her breasts, crucifixion, and decapitation.

Bernat Martorell (active 15th century) was the leading painter of Barcelona, and is considered to be the most important artist of the International Gothic style in Catalonia.
