  • An Old famous cathedral in Barcelona, good to see. If you want to enter the church, you should pay. The square is nice. Sometimes they do a market there.

  • I know old buildings need extra care and sometimes renovations, but the HUGE Samsung sign really ruins the look of the cathedral! I’m sure there is another way they could advertise that they have...

  • Awesome cathedral with tons to look at. It has a bunch of walk up exhibits to look at various paintings and sculptures. The inside of the building is magnificent with the stained glass and high ceiling interior. The front is closed off from getting up close but you can still see it from afar. The rooftop experience is alright - nothing special. My only gripe is the only restroom is outside near the exit and requires payment
  • From the Cathedral itself, to the square it is located in, is definitely worth a visit... the square offers social interaction with musicians performing, dogs playing and people socializing. The cathedral is breathtaking from every angle and make for amazing pictures. The beauty of the architecture and spirituality of the place is just exceptional. Would recommend a visit to everyone, even if you are not religious
