Beautiful from the outside but breathtaking inside. Sheer size of the Basilica stuns and tells a lot of the past of Saragossa. Rich and faithful must have they been to build such a jewel. Beautiful baroque frescos, magnificent altars and paintings shows Catholic Church in its full glory. Worth visiting

This gargantuan church completely dominates the Zaragoza skyline, as well as the surrounding plazas. The church has a charmingly beautiful exterior, but what resides within is positively regal.

View is not to be missed. Take the elevator (ascensor) to the top for a small charge and see the city with a birds eye view. Also don't miss the Goya works inside or the unexploded bombs.

This a truly magnificent building, imposing from the outside and opulent from the inside. A true example of medieval excess and religious power.

We stopped in Zaragoza on our way to Barcelona to see the cathedral and the Roman ruins. The cathedral alone warrants a trip to the city. It's really great.

I visited the Basilica de Nuestra Senora del Pilar twice in one day, during the daytime and at night. It must be seen like this so you can capture the beauty of it.

This church is beautiful during the day but I thought it was more stunning at night. The views from the stone bridge are amazing! It's a big structure and it's one of the highlights of a Zaragoza trip. The Christmas environment and fair around the church made the ambiance even cooler! The inside is pretty but I honestly liked it... More
