I found this interesting but a bit shcoking as a non-Catholic - selling lottery tickets, conveyor belt baptisms and a 'My Little Pony' on a ceiling? Weird! Awesome architecture though.

A wonder marvel for believers and non alike. The breath taking sculptures, paintings and history will give you chills. And if you're a believer, La Virgin de Pilar will certainly handsomely reward your faith.

No fee to enter....the history it has, the exposed bombs from the war that didn´t explode, that it is the Spanish main Hispanidad temple...Zaragoza´s people is very friendly, not many English speakers but so so helpful and friendly that they will make a drawing to show u where u have to go/ are...etc ;)

This cathedral located near the river is wonderful, from inside and outside. You can get a great view of it from the plaza del Pilar, the stone bridge behind it or the tower of the cathedral. The entrance is free.

A huge Beautiful Church that can be seen almost from anywhere in Zaragoza, living to it's reputation as one of the Largest churches in Europe. Such a photogenic exterior colorful design, and simply breath taking artistic from the inside, with gold shrines and quite relaxing atmosphere. You can take photos but not during religious ceremonies. You can take a ticket... More

Simply the most beautiful building imaginable. Outside is a treat but inside is something to behold. It left me breathless. Stunning building in a beautiful city not overcrowded with tourists. Highly recommended.

This Basilica was amazing both on the inside and the outside as well. If you're in Zaragoza, make sure you check this out. Also, they don't like anyone taking photos inside the Basilica, they're very strict about this. In summary: Very beautiful and detailed.

The night views across the river is awesome. Best time to visit will be October when the Pilar Festival takes place in Zaragoza

The interior is very beautiful. There was a mass going on at the time. I'm not Catholic, but it is nice to see an historical cathedral being part of the community.
