  • Q say that Zaragoza is known for its Virgin of Pilar, said Temple is it required nothing more that visiting the city, form part of one of the temples Marian most important in the world, without saying, the artistic part of the religious value having its cool and its domes, some painted by Goya and one spectacular altar and most importantly the visit to the Virgen del Pilar part of religious devotion.

  • The unusual Church! This altar I have not seen anywhere else! The device, building the Church unique and peculiar. Chapel of Virgin Mary is a tent, repeating its shape dome of the Cathedral of St. Peter. It is very popular and visited. We went there a few times a day and never it was not empty. And have it its a good good energy. Here I want to go. Again and again ....

  • This is without a doubt the most beautiful church I have ever seen. It's stunning!
  • Fantastic cathedral. Famous pilgrim place. The most important visit in Zaragoza not only for Catholics. You can find the most important dome of Francisco de Goya, the world famous painter. And you can see 2 real bombs from Spanish Civil war. Ask for the story to locals. Tips for Travelers: - For Catholics, you have a mass almost every hour. See schedule in my photo. - For everybody, buy the typical souvenir "cinta del Pilar" for 1 €. In the left side of the main door.
  • Besides the great story of the 2 miracles this is an amazing basilica, and gives you some awesome views of the city.
  • 1 hour of amazement, while I was visiting this. Definite go.
  • Impressive cathedral. A must see if you go to Zaragoza.
