  • A majestic church in the middle of the city's gothic district. Worth your time as much as the Sagrada Familia is, so definetely visit

  • This is a must see if one visit Barcelona, Spain. I took a one day city tour bus (green line) to reached there, paid euro 30 for 1 adult. I sat on the open top tour bus, when the bus about to reached the cathedral from afar and stopped next to it, the excitement built up and one word ‘breathtaking’! Literally my jaw dropped, and my eyes were feasting on this cathedral! Word had to give new meaning. The cathedral was very grand, tall, a lot of details, very, very beautiful and one had to take time to admire it and gave thanks for able to view such a creation. I spend my entire afternoon admiring the cathedral. So much to see and appreciate.
  • Awesome cathedral with tons to look at. It has a bunch of walk up exhibits to look at various paintings and sculptures. The inside of the building is magnificent with the stained glass and high ceiling interior. The front is closed off from getting up close but you can still see it from afar. The rooftop experience is alright - nothing special. My only gripe is the only restroom is outside near the exit and requires payment
