A really impressive piece of architecture from 'Old Spain'. It's in the centre of this old city, full of history and with a great sense of tradition. Plenty of little old cafe bars nearby also for that full old world charm.

It is a wonderful cathedral, a marvellous example of gothic architecture. It is a bit pricey (7 euros) but it is really worth a visit. Audioguide was nice although it had some minor mistakes.

Larger than St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York, this gothic-architecture masterpiece is the pride of Burgos. You will notice some major differences between American churches and this type of sacred building; e.g., the large central nave is dominated, not be pews, but by the "choir"...More

You don't get tired watching the magnificent works of art that contain this cathedral. The price of the tickets has been invested in its restoration.

Stunning medieval architecture, very reminiscent of the cathedral in Palma, Mallorca. If you want to see it for free, wait & attend a mass, but the organised tours are more informative.

Mural Near Catedral de Barcelona (3 Replies)
I took a photo of a mural near the Catedral de Barcelona and would like to know who drew it. It looks like a king and queen and what might be a tree between them as well as two children on the right. It's in the square right outside the church and it's almost like a stick drawing in black on white wall. Does anyone know who drew it?

Hi, It is on the wall of the College of Architects for Catalunya and the Balearic Islands, its is based on drawings done specially by Picasso and it was engraved by a Norwegian artist. you can go into the building, where there are often models and drawings on display, and it has a nice book / gift shop. (I have a good friend who works in the building)

First time to Barcelona in March! (5 Replies)
Hello Travelers! My fellow and I are travelling to Barcelona for the first week of March. I anticipate from research the weather will be high 50-60s (F), is this correct? This is our first time to Spain! We are active folks in our 30s and am reading conflicting information regarding day trips and local city sights. Do folks suggest booking day trips prior to arriving in Barcelona? We are interested in three particular day trips, Pyrenees, Montserrat, or Costa Brava? Are there ones...More

This is a correct for averages in March (10ºc-16ºc) and for someone from Portland, Maine this temperature is probably great but it's still winter and we can get a cold front (in 2010 we even had a day of snow). For trips, Depending on the duration of your stay day trips can be great (not recommended for short stays as there is too much to do and see in the city). If you're thinking to take organized guided tours than it is better to book them in advance but it is easy to do the tours on...More

Mya: While in Madrid you can do day trips to Toledo and Segovia. Read about these day trips in the top questions of the Madrid forum. El Escoriat is also good to see. The Mezquita/Cathedral is very beautiful and I would see it. Read Buying Alhambra Tickets Online. Buy early. Ronda is one of the best white towns you can visit, with views you will never forget in your life. Hemingway said it was the most romantic town in Spain. For train travel, read Buying Renfe Tickets Onlline.
