“Go before noon and get in free”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

This is a beautiful church with so much to see inside. I recommend a tour if you really want to understand and appreciate every part of the church. There is someone at the door checking for appropriate wear -- shoulders and knees covered, so be prepared to be turned away if you are not dressed properly.

“favorite sight in barcelona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

I can't explain why, but this was my favorite sight in Barcelona! Originally we weren't even going to go here because we were just wandering around on our second (and last) day here, but we happened to wind up there and I'm so glad we did. It was truly breathtaking. We ended up sitting on a bench in front of it for a good half hour just looking at it, appreciating where we were.

There's also plenty of people watching opportunities as you see people trying to take selfies with the Cathedral.

“Beautiful !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

An ethereal experience. On entering one is filled with awe. It is magnificent in work and colour and lighting. A must visit. I felt lucky to sit through the evening prayer in the chapel on the right after entering . It has a beautiful ceiling.

There is fee to enter but check for timings when you can enter for free. Yes it's possible.

“Beautiful - free on Saturday!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Go on .saturdays, when it is free! Otherwise, you'll have to pay Euro 6. But it would still be worth it.

“A beautiful and accessable Cathedral & sanctuary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Loved this church - so beautiful. Sprung for the trip to the top and the views were fabulous. Love the history and the workmanship. It was a quick and easy visit and lovely. Ladies - don't forget shoulder covers or you'll be buying a scarf at the front door.
