  • 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.
