What a beautiful place just to wander. So many different styles in this church. The main alter is mesmorizing and the tapestries are worth a visit.

This church sits in the shadow of the huge cathedral, but its stonework is more impressive. Looking at the church from the plaza, travel around to the left side and view the intricate patterns from the narrow street.

We liked this more than the Basilica. The stonework is far better and the atmosphere is more peaceful. The only problem is that you aren't allowed to take photographs. I understand that it is a place of worship, but they charge for entrance and that also makes it a place of tourism. And there are certainly things worth photographing. The... More

Loved this place. It has so much going on, and is very informative about its history. This was almost a combination of a church and a museum. The tapestries were very interesting. I know a little Spanish, not enough to be fluent, so a lot of what I learned was translated from my mother and aunt. I could read a... More

There are many reasons to visit the Cathedral: the wonderful white stone, the patterned mudejar outside wall, the ornate baroque tower, the high gothic vaulting, the organ, the great golden altarpiece, the royal Aragonese tombs… Also some interesting side-chapels. One is dedicated to Pedro Arbues, canon of the cathedral and Inquisitor for the Holy Office, who was murdered in 1485,... More

Although I thought the Basilica was good, this beats the Basilica into a cocked hat. There are so many beautiful things to see. I took so long on walking around the church, I really did not have the time to take a careful look at the tapestries, which are also well worth checking out. Probably the best attraction in Zaragoza.... More

Overshadowed by the more popular Basilica, but every bit a worthy. Look upwards, the ceilings are truly magical. Check opening times as they close during the middle of the day

Like I stated in another review for the <<Basilica del Pilar>>, this place is just right for a walk and taking pictures. Surroundings are beautiful architecture pieces.

The arches are impressive inside this church. I would say even more impressive than Basilica de Pilar. Definitely a recommended place to visit. The only drawback- there is an entrance fee, while basilica is for free.
