“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

If you're in Zaragoza, it's a must-see. Be aware that masses are frequent so plan to be quiet during your visit.

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

Looked great from outside, in the square and was lovely to visit. Not allowed to take pictures inside - but they will sell them to you. Also be careful - you may be told off if you talk inside - unless you are a VIP - when you can do what you like, as on the day we visited at the start of the Pilar it was full of them all chattering loudly. The next day, we saw a couple talking to each other who were then castigated.

“Must see if in Zaragoza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

Amazing church..HUGH...with a canopy over alter that is the most grand I've ever seen.
The plaza outside is as grand as the church.
We loved Zaragoza...worth a trip...

“A shrine to the Feminine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

This must be as close as Catholicism gets to building a shrine for the Divine Feminine. :-) Beautiful energy in this basilica.

“Mind blowing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

This basilica located in the main square looks humble from the outside but the interiors are absolutely stunning. The ceilings are littered with art and you could sit inside for hours, just admiring the details of all the master-craftsmen and artists who had the privilege work on this basilica. One of the most beautiful places in Europe.
