“Check out the cloister”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

It has an interesting story and it's quite beautiful on the inside. There are 13 geese in the cloister! Be careful of when you go though, as if you go between noon and 5pm, I believe you have to pay. Lots of tourists. Worth checking out in any case!

“Very enjoyable visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

It was a blazing hot day and we needed a rest and to get out of the heat. We spent a couple of hours in here. Its a very peaceful place to be.
We took the lift to the roof - the views are amazing from up here. Don't try this if you are scared of heights! There is a mezzanine walkway on the roof and you can see for miles. We spotted the castle and cable cars in the distance.
Its well worth a visit.

“Definitely worth a stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Be sure to go inside the Cathedral before 1:30 or after 4:30 when there is no charge to go in. It was very crowded when we visited, and it wasn't my favorite Cathedral, but the cloister is very interesting with its 12 geese...another story.

“Awe inspiring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

If you're visiting Europe, you'll probably see a lot of churches, but don't miss this one. Magnificent architecture, cool gargoyles, sumptuous tombs and chapels. Be sure to visit St Eulalia's geese out in the cloister.

“Best go in the morning!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

This is a stunning sanctuary in the middle of a bustling vibrant city but be warned there is an entrance fee to be paid if you visit in the afternoon. Loved seeing the resident ducks who seem to be very happy to pose for photos!
