Lovely Gothic interior with beautiful sculpture. The cloister alone is worth the visit. Should not be missed.

We went into the church as part of our Gothic Quarter walking tour. It is a pretty church and definitely worth the visit especially when understanding the church dedication and the significance of the geese.

Disappointed given all the hype. €7 per person, a rich array of side crypts which you can pay to light electric candles.

Great cathedral! The rooftop access is the icing on the cake. Show up early and avoid the crowds. The elevator ride to the roof only allows small groups at a time. On a hot day the elevator was quite stuffy and hot. Another must see...More

Lovely cathedral with some stunning chapels, a museum with lovely artwork, some nice inner grounds and gilt shrines. Definitely worth a visit.

A small queue and €7 entry but it gets you up the elevator to have panaramic views of Barcelona. Lovely cathedral to visit and to hear of the 13 yr old girl who was persecuted in the 4th century for following Christ

We visited Barcelona on Sunday and the cathedral is an active 'church' with masses in the morning. You are allowed to enter between the masses if you want to pray, otherwise only in the afternoon. For me the garden was disappointing. A band was playing...More

Barcelona Cathedral is a must see! A grand, stunning building rich in history. The ticket price (€7) is modest compared to others in Barcelona and the ticket price also includes the roof. From the roof you can see over the whole of Barcelona and many...More

I agreed to join my friend for Sunday Mass at the Barcelona Cathedral. For me it wasn’t about religion. I am not Catholic. (Agnostic, I would say.) The beauty and history of this building is inspiring. The mix of locals and tourists is exciting. Walking...More

The issue we had was that it was difficult to get in when they were having an actual service---maybe the site is addressing open times when there is no religious service going on.
