  • We began our trip in Barcelona by touring this beautiful cathedral. We especially loved the outdoor garden.

  • From the moment you enter this Cathedral you are taken aback by the stone vaulted roofs. We didn't have to queue- arrived around 12.30. 9 euro seemed so reasonable. Even offers a trip in an elevator.....  more

  • Average Cathedral visitation. Beautiful Cathedral; however, there are many others that are spectacular. Going up to the roof was its saving grace, beautiful views of Barcelona. Purchase your tickets to the left of the entrance (not in the church) if the lines are long - pick your time. Much easier than waiting in line at the door.
  • 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
