Impressive architecture a must visit location, as well as surroundings @ downtown. The height of ceiling and window decoration is highly impacting.

Because of La Sagrada Familia and Barcelona Cathedral this church gets less atttention. Lovely building particularly on the outside. Costs 5 Euro to see just the church. Some really nice stained glass. Barcelona Cathedral is better however.

A beautiful church that is free to wander. Some parts (ie the crypt) require payment, however. The architecture is quite amazing, a must see in the Gothic Quarter. Go in the morning to avoid crowds etc.

Beautiful old gothic church. Definitely worth a visit. We didn't have to pay to enter and walk around and sit inside the church.

Probably the best temple in town. Very clean and elegant style, specially if you consider that the building belongs to the XIV century.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

I went in July and there was no charge to go inside the church. It was €3 to go to the roof, but it was definitely worth it!

if you are having difficulty getting an answer from the church perhaps you could contact the diocese?
