must see in BCN

La Catedral is stunning from outside, the inside is very nice but during the mess you can't pass in the whole area. Still a must see.

So many beautiful buildings and spiritual places in Barcelona and you must include this one. I used the hop on and off bus to get around and there is a stop near the Cathedral. It is absolutely beautiful!

The front façade is this amazing Neo Gothic architecture while the inside and the back is Catalan Gothic. Definetely a must see! When behing the building, observe the gargoyles on the roof, they are friendly animals (cow, unicorn etc) rather than scary monsters. When inside, learn more about the history of the Cathedral and see the tomb. Also, I recommend... More

Definitely worth a visit in Barcelona. Just be sure to cover up well as they are *very* strict on dress code, and unlike similar places I've visited there are oddly no cover-ups available to borrow or buy.. Turns out this was lucky for us as going away for my friend to find a shawl and coming back again took us... More

I expected to pay to go to the Gaudi Cathedral but didn't expect to pay here ( 7 euros each). Impressive in a specific style. A lift can take you to a view from the roof- cold at this time of year!

It's a beautiful cathedral. Around Christmas time they have the Christmas markets outside so it's really cool to go visit and do some shopping afterward.

Well worth a visit , ideally early morning to miss the crowds . There was no entrance fee when we went in on New Year's Day

The €7 entry fee is definitely worth it. The cathedral is beautiful and the views from the roof are stunning. Sadly we missed the geese. I'm not sure how, but we did...don't make the same mistake! I would say that this is an essential part of your trip to Barcelona. Cheap and central, or only takes 30 mins or so.

For 7 euros this is a wonderful rich attraction . One of the oldest structures in town this place is well preserved and simply awesome . Your ticket also gets you up to the roof to walk around for views of the city

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
