  • Visit more than recommended. It has a wonderful charm until you do not enter not you realize how great that is. The frescoed domes are very nice.

  • Although not particularly dazzling an obligatory visit. The Virgin tiny and far away, only to kiss the stone worn on his back. The interior of the large basilica, but without enthusiasm. The exterior after the expo with many contrasts but balanced and interesting. I can imagine that for believers visit has an additional plus.

  • 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.
