  • It is a beauty to admire both outside and inside, adding to all this devotion that awakens to the Virgen del Pilar! It is a must-visit when he travels to Zaragoza, even worth a scroll from anywhere in Aragon.

  • It is the first time that I come to Zaragoza and the basilica of the pillar was unaware found me it very beautiful. I don't like that you have to pay for everything. And found me very funny a priest in the confessional wasapeando

  • Beautiful place of worship. Free entrance in contrast to the Cathedral on the other side of the square. Stands out with his greatness inside a pedestrian and quiet, and right on the riverbank. Recommended

  • 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.
