Statue from top of Barcelona Cathedral brought down for restoration'After almost 96 years standing on top of the city's Gothic cathedral, about 90 metres high, the bronze image of Santa Elena was carefully brought down from her position on Friday as part of the ongoing restoration of the landmark building. Reaching almost five metres, she is now sitting in the garden of the cathedral's cloister awaiting her own cleaning.

'Santa Elena comes down to earth'The statue of Santa Elena was placed atop Barcelona Cathedral in 1913 and during her removal last week, the movers discovered damage caused to the cathedral during the Civil War. Antoni Gaudí once said that he thought the statue was one of the most beautiful in Barcelona, but too small.

'Why are there eggs in the fountain?'According to information from Barcelona city council, the origins of this tradition, dating back to the 17th-century, are unclear. Theories include the fact that the egg bears a similarity to the Host, which represents the body of Christ and is remembered during the Catholic celebrations of Corpus Christi, while another suggestion is that it symbolises new life and rebirth.
