U can tell the cathedral does not get as much in donation as the sagrada familia, and in need of some refurbishment and upkeep.

I visited on a December Wednesday just to pass some time before a game. I found it very historic, peaceful and intriguing. The chapels within contained a plethora of history and the internal courtyard very peaceful. They even had a flock of geese with their own pond and fountain. I bought souvenirs in the reasonably priced shop, also within.

I like so much the concerts held in front of the cathedral, something unknown in my country but so amazing.

It was amazing. I was so happy to be able to go in the Cathedral and go to mass. On Sundays early in the morning at 9am its free to go visit and take pictures. and if you are a practicing Cattholic the mass starts around 11am or 11:30am

The cathedral and its courtyards are absolutely beautiful! The Gothic architecture is gorgeous. It is worth taking the lift to the rooftop for some beautiful views of Barcelona.

Built so very long ago and still so beautiful. The walls seemed to inspire calmness and wonder. Its location just seems to appear before you.
