  • A large basilica with many parishioners. Many art treasures and is a place for believers. Free entrance. Museum €2 but it is worth to see it. It is a large basilica and impresses show devotion to the Virgen del Pilar generates

  • This cathedral is breathe taking! It was amazing and the grates on the floor were amazing. Unbelievable art work. A must see while in town.  more »
  • We just went to see the Vírgen de el Pilar, but the Basilica itself is beautiful and large. It is worth visiting it.

  • We visited this basilica while in Zaragoza in March 2018. It is spectacular. The ceilings, alters, and everything in between have been well preserved and leave visitors in awe. It is well worth the detour!
  • Monumental church that provokes a certain reminiscence to St Peter of the Vatican because of its collosal size and murals’ style. Nonetheless, it is not as ornamented as other cult sites, and the images are quite dark in the sense of not bright. Although the altar with the Virgin is the main attraction, please, do not fail to admire the intrincate and laborious woodworks of the musical organ, which is beautiful.
  • Do not miss this place. It is amazing. No pictures allowed inside which is a she because it is impressive.
  • They don’t allow pictures taking inside the church. Please respected that.
  • Incredible location, the entire square surrounding the church are very beautiful. This picture is from the holy week processions
