4holocene“The harvest is being lost with each passing day”

The junction between the Carrer de Sant Sever and Baixada de Santa Eulàlia immediately southwest of Barcelona Cathedral commemorates two of the city’s most famous Christian martyrs. The Fourth Tale prays for rain and release from the threat of famine, imploring the tortured martyrs to ameliorate a fickle climate. It also introduces the Holocene epoch, eleven thousand years of modern humans, and the eighteen year old Miquel Parets who will return to help guide The Traveller through later stories in the book.
