We were lucky to be back here on a cloudy, cool day. The other days we'd been by the line ups had been huge. We got in within 5 - 10 minutes, and the interior of this church is amazing. The soaring ceilings with the...More

The Barcelona Cathedral is beautiful both on the exterior and interior. There is no entrance fee which was unexpected and a nice treat. It’s the perfect place to stop in and reflect while walking around Barcelona. Please don’t miss going there, even if you are...More

All around the outside are singers and dancers and balloon makers, strolling men in armor and locals forming little folk dances. Very lively and happy place. Inside it’s dark and cool and peaceful. Gorgeous interior.

This is a beautiful place, very different from French Gothic. We especially enjoyed the cloister and the small museum. It is well worth a visit.

A more gothic cathedral in comparison to la sagrada familia. Not all cathedrals are alike. This one was extraordinary! You could spend hours there.

Definitely recommend you see this. There's great history here and a lot of really cool details. Don't miss the cloister area and the small chapels throughout.

This place is fabulous. Only complaint is it was very warm last Sunday for Mass, but worth every minute. Amazing building.

If you dont want to visit every single cathedral, go here and to Segrada Familia. It is vast and interesting. The highlight was the visit to the roof - great views and you can get a deeper feel for the cathedral's construction.

The issue we had was that it was difficult to get in when they were having an actual service---maybe the site is addressing open times when there is no religious service going on.

As far as I remember you paid into the Cahederal and this included the rooftop if you wanted to go up. We didn’t book in advance nor take a tour although I do remember an audio tour on offer. We went in the October, so not... More

Roof top access is part of entry to the Cathedral via an internal elevator. There is no supervision up there, your certainly not near the edge of the roof but scaffolding walkways are narrow at some parts. It is worth a... More
