Take the elevator in the rear left tower to an amazing viewpoint over the whole city. Absolutely stunning! The roof tiles are worth it alone.

This is a fantastic landmark and an amazing building, but fells almost more like an railway station than a cathedral, maybe it's the brick architecture... so huge on the inside that it is a rather impersonal space.

Park your car in the underground parking at Plaza del Pilar and as you surface from the gloom this wonderful building is the first thing you see and worth it with its 11 brightly coloured tiled cupolas.

I personally loved this basil. It's really pretty, it has got a Russian style when it comes to architectonic speech. It is big and it has something that makes you feel at home, I strongly recommend it

Impressive building, as many other cathedrals in Europe. Entrance is free. No photos are allowed inside, so just go and enjoy the marvels inside. Nice view of the magnificent basilica from the Santiago Bridge.

Before coming to Zaragoza we had read that this was a wonderful building; and we certainly found this to be true. We were - and still are - bowled over by its beauty, especially the exterior. Despite its great size, the Basilica is not heavy...More

In winter, I entered the basilica at 8.45am but the gift shop is still closed. Bells are rung at 9am. We could still visit at 8pm after dinner.

10 PM is early in Zaragoza! The lights should be going strong when you arrive. Just take a bus or taxi to the Puente de Piedra (the bridge close by), and you should get great photos.
