A remarkable place to visit

The place is absolutely wonderful. Beauty is in the details every where. From the huge square at its front to the wonderful building itself, I was blown away.

A visit to this wonderful part of Spain would not be complete without a slow walking tour around this Gothic cathedral. It's huge spires and many carvings and statues embolden the facade and provide eye candy to the visitor. The interior is magnificent and a wonder as to how it was built so many years ago. The craftsmanship and labor... More

This city landmark is relatively unspoiled by tourism on any real scale......illuminated at night in a vast square with restaurants nearby.

I've been to a lot of churches around Europe and this one stands out, due to its amazing exterior decorations, and the significance of the interior treasures, especially the Lady of the Pillar. Also, it's possible to get great photos from the Roman bridge behind the church, or from across the river. Definitely a must see here.

Whether or not you like going into Basilicas you ought to go into this one, if only because of it's emblematic importance to the city. It perhaps looks better from the outside than from in, and it certainly has a roof that you don't see every day. Try to go when the lift in the corner tower is open so... More

I found it to be like many other monuments of India. The exterior beauty and the scale of the building leaves you gasping and it's only a basilica. The golden coloured/plated roof inside is also a work of art. A must visit when in Saragossa. My home for a few months.

Breathtaking is the only word to describe the Basilica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar. The basilica is perhaps a football field in length and beautifully constructed with flying buttresses. The plaza outside of the basilica is a relaxing place to sit and to take in the beautiful exterior of the basilica. The basilica is a must see for any tourist... More

The exterior of this basilica is quite beautiful with shimmering tile adorning much of the upper reaches glimmering the Zaragosa sunlight. Inside, it is an enormous space that draws huge crowds of locals and tourists alike. There are many explanatory plaques placed about the interior sharing the long history of the building in several languages and it is quite easy... More
