Saint Eulalia (Aulaire, Aulazia, Olalla, Eulària) (†303), co-patron saint of Barcelona, was a 13-year-old Roman Christian virgin who suffered martyrdom in Barcelona during the persecution of Christians in the reign of emperor Diocletian​. For refusing to recant her Christianity, the Romans subjected her to thirteen tortures; including: ​putting her into a barrel with knives stuck into it and rolling it down a street​, ​cutting off her breasts​, ​​crucifixion on an X-shaped cross​, ​and ​finally, decapitation.​ Her feast day is commemorated on February 12 (August 22 in the Orthodox Church)​
