The narrative is, together with memory, the foundation of the historian's work. Here, we will take the narrative of aesthetic dazzle and the narrative of social memory as elements of speech of the city and the Cathedral of Barcelona between the 13th and 15th centuries – period of construction of the Gothic building. The memories related to the Cathedral of Barcelona at that time will be identified and analyzed from the events that involved it – internally and externally – and from the imaginary of the temple formed from the facts and social perspectives themselves. The landscape will be understood as the field of visualization in which the Cathedral inserts itself and characterizes it visually, with the Gothic Cathedral being the element of space that supports the landscape design in front of the aesthetics and the value judgments for it and built by it. From impressions, emotions and aesthetics, to which popular legends and knowledge are linked, the memory of the Cathedral of Barcelona was based on the very structure of the building. At the same time, the temple assisted in the construction of the memory of an external landscape, this space comprising the entire city of Barcelona and especially the Cathedral area. Thus, the Gothic aesthetics, here, will be perceived as the driving element of the imaginary related to the Cathedral, also enabling the affirmation of a landscape of internal memory, in view of the resources used by such architectural style in order to resort to the artistic sensitivity as a form of sensory rapture and fostering faith.
