Barcelona Cathedral, Barcelona

4.5
Walk the 500-year-old halls of the impressive Barcelona Cathedral. Constructed in the 13th century, the Gothic cathedral features a main hall vaulted over five aisles, with dozens of high columns. Saunter the grand hall to admire the high ceilings and ornate altar decor, or wander out to the main cloister where 13 white geese are kept as part of the cathedral’s tradition. Try to spot the famous gargoyles that line the cathedral’s roof and main facade. See Barcelona Cathedral and all Barcelona has to offer by arranging your trip with our Barcelona travel route planner.

  • "La Catedral de la Santa Creu i Santa Eulàlia" is a Gothic cathedral in the Barri Gòtic district. It is not as well known as "La Sagrada Familia", but it is a very beautiful and impressive church...  more »
  • I think that La Sagrada Familia gets most of the attention in Barcelona, but this cathedral deserves more. Construction began in 1298 and took 150 years to complete! Different guilds (such as a...  more »

  • Nice place to visit a pray. Centrally located with an easy underground parking within 3min walk. On Sundays at 11am they have a Catalan religious music outside with people dancing a traditional Catalan dance. Be aware that the church is closed during mass on Saturdays and Sundays. Also they have a dress code to have clothes to the knees and covered shoulders. The nice part is they provide scarfs for free (to return ;) ) The surrounding neighborhood is very pleasant with a number of great shops and restaurants. Like most places in Europe, most shops are closed Sundays.
  • A magnificent cathedral I would recommend everyone to pay their visit. The cathedral is closed to the tourists during mass hours on Sundays. Entry fee is €7 per person. Simple security check prior ticket office. Only thing I appreciate is that if you could please turn your phone on silence while taking photos. Thank you.
  • Beautiful architecture. Nothing more can be said than what has already been said. There is nearby parking (50 yards) in an underground garage. But, the garage is tight. We drove in with a full sized sedan and barely fit. But, it is extremely close to the cathedral.
  • The Cathedral of Barcelona is well worth adding to your itinerary during your visit to Barcelona. The architecture is stunning and the atmosphere is spiritual. This building truly demonstrates the power of the Christian church during the period it was built. An audio guide is available and I recommend fast track to avoid the queues for a few extra euros.
  • The Cathedral of Barcelona is absolutely stunning!! In addition to it's magnificent architecture, the interior is decorated from floors (literally carved with names and very old dates e.g.1200's), to the ceiling. We spent almost two hours there and probably missed as much as we saw. It is awe- inspiring and I would highly recommend putting it in your itinerary when visiting Barcelona! We did it on our own but guided tours are also available.
