Nice basilica

We stayed In Zaragoza for only one afternoon and night, so we can just make a walk around the city and the Basilica de Nuestra Senora was one of the highlight of the sightseeing.

We were only in Zaragoza for one evening as we were traveling from Hondaribbia to Cardona, but we found the area near the Basilica very alive and beautiful. After joining the crowds meandering through the narrow streets filled with tapas bars, we came out to the beautifully lit Basilica and plaza. It was a delightful evening.

A Roman Catholic Basilica in Zaragoza,Spain.The basilica was declared a National Monument and is one of the most important spiritual destinations in Spain. A jewel of Baroque art built between the 17th - 18th centuries it is specially beautiful when lit at night. Also has great views from the other side of the bridge of the River Ebro. Inside there...

The architecture is very different from other Cathedrals we usually visit. Nice to see at night.. Near a lot of other places to visit

To me, most european cathedrals are the same. The architecture is different, but it is just another place to worship christianity. The frescoes by Fransisco Goya are good, but its the same as all others I've been to in my opinion.

The Basilica del Pilar is the iconic landmark of Zaragoza. It's so beautiful, especially around Christmas. I highly recommend the option of going all the way up one of the towers. The tickets are 3 euros, and the views from the top are amazing! Many days, you can see the entire city laid out. One day, my view was clouded... More

One of the most beautifull Basilicas I have ever seen, the art work is impressive. During the month of October are the festivities for Nuestra Señora del Pilar, and during easter week they have the processions, amazing.

A Roman Catholic church. The architecture is Baroque style and it was built between 1681 and 1872. It features paintings on the ceiling by Goya and Bayaeu who are very famous and classic artists. Free entry but the no photo policy is enforced ferociously. The present temple succeeds the Gothic one built in 1515, which in its turn replaced the... More

The Basilica is immense and literally has room for two main altars. The altars are beautifully worked. Walking around the outside portion of the interior gives one the sense of how large this place really is. If you have been to Compostela or will be going there on your journey, this Basilica represents the rest of the St. James story.... More
