This Basilica is a wonderful structure right in the heart of Zaragoza and should be on the top 5 of the To Do list.

Stopped in Zaragoza for only 4 hours and could only visit a couple of places and this one definitely is remarkable and the right choice. An impressive architecture and marvelous decoration. Stepped inside and got chocked with its wonderful details. Couldn't get up to the tower but the visit was definitely worth and wish I could have had more time... More

We stopped in Zaragoza to kick off a driving tour north through Huesca to Jaca and on to Donostia, spectacular architecture and history - we felt like Zaragoza deserved more of our time and this primarily came from the walk through the cathedral. Just wow....

Really impressive building both inside and out. Sitting at a nearby cafe with a drink and tapas watching the light on the building as the sun goes down is lovely!

One of those most incredible Basilicas we have seen, and we have seen many of them! Craftsmanship is extraordinary. Fortunately we were present for the Assumption Feast Day Mass, although we don't speak Spanish we know the 'process', it was beautiful. The organ sound is immense. We love to spend more time exploring this beautiful cathedral.

I have absolutely fallen in love with this Basilica. You cannot take pictures inside, which is a shame because it's so beautiful! so I can only show you the fabulous facade but this is what dreams are made of.
