“Magnificent structure in an impressive city”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

A large and magnificent edifice in the heart of this old city. Wander around inside and take in the beauty and scale of this Basilica. The towers and roof structures are a sight to behold. Well worth a visit if in the vicinity.

“Beautiful basilica”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

Beautiful baroque basilica, probably most famous attraction in the city. There's also an elevator in the bell-tower on the river bank, but it's expensive and i would not call the view too impressive.

“beautiful basilica”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

gorgeous as it is, by day and night. We passed by the basilica at night, it was beautiful. We went in the morning, the basilica is magnificent, not just from the outside but inside also.

“Most important attraction in the city”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This must-see attraction in Zaragoza is just in the city center. Is not only the outside and the square near it, it is also the inside of the building (free entrance). Walk in silence in the inside and if you hace the opportunity to visit the city during the local festivities (Fiestas del Pilar o Pilares) on October, on the 12th of October and over a few days, this place changes at all and lots of flowers decorates the center of the sqare.

“A must see”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

The basilica del Pilar is an attraction not to be missed. No entry fee to see some beautiful frescoes, a magnificent main altar carved in alabaster and a wonderful organ. If the museum is open stop by and admired all the jewels given to the patron. Light your candle and leave your prayers .....
