This is everything that you would expect from a Cathedral in a major City. The internal architecture is very good. The calming atmosphere is very good. The views from the roof are brilliant. Well worth the entrance fee.

Beautiful cathedral and architecture. Could not go inside due to a private event but was still inspired. Gaudi museum was just next door.

The cathedral is absolutely incredible, very ornate and fabulous views of the city from the rooftops. The glass panels are stunning and well worth a visit, suggest buying tickets on line before arriving.

7 Euros is cheap for the views. You can walk around on top using the elevator. A thousand years young still with active services.

Very beautiful old gothic cathedral. It was free to get in and it was lovely. The stained glass windows were stunning. The geese in the outdoor cloister were different and had a story. I really liked this cathedral.

Very beautiful Gothic Chuch in the historic part of Barcelona. It's free to enter before noon and really worth the visit. The choir stalls are simply stunning.

Walked to Cathedral of Barcelona after visiting the Picasso Museum. Entry fee was €25 per person and can be paid at the door. The line to get into the church moves very fast so we did not buy tickets prior to our trip. Self-Guided Tour...More

They offer tours almost daily - check with the cathedral for times; etc. It always had something going on. We ate an adjacent cafe and people watched.

Go to the website for the Cathedral (Tripadvisor has a link), click on the British flag for English & click on the link for Masses under Opening Hours - the masses are in Spanish or Catalan.
