Beautiful cathedral in the center of Barcelona with historic importance, in particular.: - The crypt of Saint Eulalia, the 13 year old girl that was tortured to death by the Romans in 303 because she refused to worship the Roman gods, - Six Indians brought to Euroupe by Chirsitoffer Columbus were baptised here in 1493. Besides the architechture of the... More

Lovely cathedral - very atmospheric, free entry after 5pm which was great, make sure you wear appropriate clothing as you will be asked to cover up. Nice water fountain - supposed to be lucky to drink from it. Would recommend worth a visit.

A must see in the Gothic Quarter. A wonderful and elaborate Gothic church with the feel of what Barcelona was like back then. You have to visit the rooftop, what a view!

It's not La Sagrada Familia, but worth the trip just the same. There are a ton of altars in this cathedral. The decor is very middle-ages.

An amazing building in the gothic quarter - you even get the chance to ride an elevator to the top of the bell tower for amazing views of the city. Very good value as the ticket includes the main entrance, ride to the roof top, museums and crypt. Well worth a couple of hours!

Loved this visit the cutest church ever, if you go towards the last hour there is no fee to get in, just make sure you have don't go sleeveless or with too short of shorts. Beyond that it was beautiful and you can take great pictures.

Very happy we toured this Church.....a unique choir section, central crypt, beautiful side altars, garden courtyard with geese & fountain, and a rooftop tour with nice views of Barcelona skyline. Barcelona Catholics are blessed with truly beautiful churches to worship in.

Fee is 6 euro and it worth it. Cathedral is magnificent. We loved the garden with fountains, fish in it and geese. :) In this atmosphere it was unusually but nice.

We had a lovely visit to the cathedral and the 6 euros entry fee was worth it for the visit to the roof alone. Inside the cloisters are great, providing a peaceful and calm access to the cathedral. The cathedral itself is very special, the area around the choir quite unusual, giving the sense of separation between front and rear.... More

Although this is free sometimes, we went in there afternoon, and had to pay 6 euro, it was still worth the visit if you like churches. There is a choir that practices each afternoon, and it was lovely to wander around with the soft melodies they sang, otherwise this is quite a dark place. The other benefit of paying is... More
