I see my comments are the same as the ones who put in bad ratings. I'm a Catholic. This means that any Catholic Church is my home. I don't pay to visit my home. Nor should I have to be forced to pay to visit a Cathedral. If I were asked for a donation for the upkeep of the church,... More

I entered from the cloister, it was quite different from the others I had seen (though Jerónimos Monastery's cloister is better)... a big garden in the center and a fountain too! the inside is also very interesting because of its beauty and history! it was here that Columbus's 5 american natives to be baptized!! great cathedral!!

Was disappointed not to be able to go up any of the towers, inside was 'just another cathedral' which although lovely in its own way was nothing outstanding. A very personal opinion though.

Well worth a visit when eveveryone seems to go for the new build Sagrada Familia. A traditional cathedral. Be sure not to wear strappy T shirts as entry can be refused. Also take the lift to the roof where there are spectacular views of the city. See the courtyard area as well.

It was not very busy for Friday afternoon. There was no fee to go in, photos are allowed, no cell phones, turn them silent. You should be dressed appropriately, no shorts and cleavage. There is a nice garden with pond in the middle with swans and ducks. There are no guides there so you can read about it before you... More

The Cathedral of Santa Eulalia is a very large church and there is much to see. The figure of Christ above the main altar is a wonderful sculpture that was created by Frederic Mares. There are many chapels that are very interesting and the stained glass windows are very good. The large cloister has the little pond with 13 geese,... More

This is easy to visit while you are wandering around. I don't think I would plan to spend too much time here, but it was fun to see.

Worth the Euros 6 (free after 5pm, I think). The history, the Art, the Grandeur of it all & the spectacular roof top visit, by lift. The views! We were treated to an operatic performance outside the side gate. What a treat!

The Cathedral is free to enter and is a lovely way to spend an afternoon. There are several areas in addition to the main cathedral that you can explore, including the roof and gardens.
