  • Another majestic piece of architecture ans well worth the price. Book tickets in advance. The rooftop was closed due to rain but the lighting inside was memorable.

  • 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
  • Absolutely beautiful cathedral. I loved the whole Gothic quarter. So many places to eat and drink. We enjoyed this whole area when we were on vacation in Barcelona from the USA. Amazing people and architecture. This cathedral was very packed with tourist hardly room to walk so might want to check popular times on their website .
  • I've seen so many Cathedrals, but this one is unique. There is an amazing rooftop and a really cool garden at the exit. I enjoyed those bonus features and the made this visit more enjoyable. Definitely a must see!
  • Beautiful old gothic church in Barcelona. The indoor architecture design was amazing. I highly recommend this landmark of a religious interest. Lovely panoramic view of the city from the top of church but limited number of people allowed inside elevator so it might take you longer to the top but otherwise great experienced to see the view.
