Even if for a few minutes, make sure you allow yourself some time to go visit the first church dedicated to Mary in History. Gorgeous! Also, Tourism Office is just opposite the Basilica and they provide interesting facts and useful information for free.

We went twice! Their is always a mass going on, but you are still free to roam (better yet, sit for mass). The church is very unique, and should be your first stop in Zaragoza. The pictures at night from the bridges behind it are amazing!

Well worth spending some time visiting this church. Almost several churches within. Best to read online before visiting to fully appreciate it.

Inside, it is a living place that is obviously well used by the local community, and well worth a look. I witnessed two little boys in religious gowns standing over some ground air-vents inside, twirling around, their clothes bellowing out... More

Breathtaking. We visited he Basilica of Our Lady of Pilar during the fiesta weekend of the 11th, 12th and 13th October.
