  • I went with some friends Holy Thursday's trip to Zaragoza. We could not visit the basilica. None of us are religious and we especially like the basilicas, but it was actually very nice, tantopor outside as it is on the inside (we are not experts but I like to travel and I have seen quite a few)

  • Quite simply, spectacular. I am surprised that someone catalogue it as "ugly, ugly, ugly"; shows do not have any standard or absolute idea of art. Seeing where he was born and lives, I can understand that

  • 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.
